Survey: US holiday spending to show a scant rise in 2012
from Chicago Tribune
Consumers plan to spend an average of $749.51 on gifts, decorations and other holiday items this season, a mere 1.2 percent more than a year ago, according to a survey conducted for the National Retail Federation. The rise would be the smallest since 2008-2009 when holiday sales fell 1.8 percent after the financial meltdown.
