According to NRF survey, Super Saturday continues to be the biggest shopping day of the year. The turnout is estimated at 147.8 million customers, up from 134.3 million in 2018.

While many people started holiday shopping early, those who waited until Thanksgiving weekend are feeling the pressure due to the limited number of days this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. But there is still time to catch up. The last Saturday before Christmas has become the biggest shopping day of the year, and we expect an impressive turnout by procrastinators and those who just want to take advantage of really good deals
