Multitudes Expected to Shop Day After Christmas

Up to 60% more shoppers than last year are expected to walk through retailers’ doors on Dec. 26 this year. According to ShopperTrak—a provider of retail and mall foot-traffic counting services—consumers will shop in droves the day after Christmas because it falls on a Monday for the first time in six years. Dec. 26 is expected to rank third in foot traffic for the holiday shopping season, surpassed only by Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and Super Saturday, the Saturday one week before Christmas.
