This year’s annual Holiday retail outlook survey report shows Canadians’ economic optimism is rising slightly as the economy continues to slowly improve. Most plan to spend as much as they did last year, which usually means they’ll spend slightly more. As a result, we forecast a 2% to 2.5% rise in retail sales this holiday season — a welcome counterpoint following mixed results to date.

Last year, retail sales rose 1.4%, right in line with our prediction of 1% to 2% sales growth. In the U.S., by comparison, Deloitte predicts holiday sales will rise 4% to 4.5%.
Shopping habits in Canada

Canadian consumers’ shopping habits are also evolving:

•While online shopping increases in popularity, cross-border shopping plateaus among price-conscious consumers.
•The use of smartphones has also intensified, though for the most part, Canadians seem more comfortable using them for research and less for purchases.
•Shipping appears to be the new competitive edge in a world where consumers are online, price-conscious and shopping early.
