    NEW YORK (AP) — To understand the impact of surging inflation on this year’s back-to-school spending, look no further than children’s rain boots with motifs like frogs and ladybugs made by Washington Shoe Co. Spending held steady for these evergreen items even after the Kent, Washington-based business was forced to pass along 15% price increases in January to its retail clients because of soaring transportation costs. But by May, as gas and food prices also surged, shoppers abruptly shifted away from the $35 higher-end rain boots to the no-frills versions that run $5 to $10 cheaper, its CEO Karl Moehring said. “We are seeing consumers shift down,” said Moehring, noting dramatic 20% sales swings in opposite directions for both types of products. “Wages are not keeping up with inflation.” This back-to-school shopping season, parents — particularly in the low to middle income bracket — are focusing on the basics while also trading down to cheaper stores amid surging inflation, which hit a new 40-year high in June. Last week, Walmart noted higher prices on gas and food are...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Many regulars at King Soopers are choosing not to cross the picket lines and are taking their business elsewhere. Parking lots at the grocery stores around the Denver metro area were unusually empty Wednesday as workers began the first day of their strike. “The people we saw going in today were a lot of Instacart workers and people trying to get their medications switched over to another store,” Anne Marie Gonzalez, a King Soopers employee. “I’m hoping it doesn’t last long. But I’m out here for the long haul till we have to be.” While fighting for better pay and safer working conditions, Gonzalez remembers her coworkers lost to COVID and the potential dangers ahead if conditions don’t change. “We’ve seen people we love pass away. Then there’s the shooting at the other store in Boulder. That’s another thing that’s scary because we’ll be working and hear somebody yelling up in the front of the store and it’s scary. We don’t know if they’re going to come in with weapons. We used to have security in...
    Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, a new survey found that some 1 in 3 shoppers overspent during this past holiday season. A post-holiday survey by WalletHub found that of those who took on debt during the 2021 holiday shopping season, a majority plan to pay it off by the end of January while 43% said it would take longer. Some 20% said that it would take past April to pay off their holiday expenses. The country was split when it came to COVID-19’s impact on their celebrations. A slim majority of 56% said that the spreading virus did not affect their holiday plans. That is despite the omicron variant coming to the fore in the weeks leading up to Christmas and the new year.

This week, the United States blew past its previous record for cases, with new cases climbing by more than 1 million in a single day. While cases are...
              by Harry Wilmerding   Many U.S. consumers racked up debt this holiday season, and most of them won’t be able to pay it off immediately, according to a report published Wednesday. Around 36% of consumers went into debt, spending on presents, plane tickets and decorations, owing an average of $1,249, up from 31% in 2020, according to a report by LendingTree. Despite the percentage of holiday borrowers increasing in 2021, the average amount of spending dropped by 10% from 2020. “There’s a real divide in how Americans are feeling financially right now,” Matt Schulz, chief credit analyst at LendingTree, said in the report. Individuals with the greatest likelihood of incurring holiday debt were parents with kids under the age of 18 and millennials ages 25-40, with around half of each group doing so, according to the report. “The pressure on parents from kids, friends, relatives and from society in general to give until it hurts during the holiday is very real,” Schulz said. Schulz highlighted that millennials are often still paying off student loans while also trying to save some of their...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Last-minute shoppers have once again returned to the halls of local malls after nearly two years of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Last-minute shoppers at Cherry Creek Mall largely said they were shopping on Christmas Eve intentionally, and not out of necessity. (credit: CBS) “We are seeing traffic return to the center at pre-pandemic levels,” said Jeramy Burkinshaw, General Manager of Cherry Creek Mall.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Right now, it’s the busiest time for shopping, but while we’re in a pandemic, many are also hoping to avoid crowds and be outside as much as possible. The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes is one of the outdoor shopping and lifestyle centers near metro. “People really like the open air, they just want to be outside, so we do attract outside of Maple Grove, definitely,” Jennie Zafft, the marketing director of the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, said. Zafft says foot traffic is down this year compared to last, but a new trend they’re seeing is more purchasing, and less window shopping and wondering around. “The people who are coming are definitely spending. they’re more purposeful,” Zafft said. Many shoppers WCCO spoke to said they purposefully came to Arbor Lakes to avoid the crowds of indoor malls. “Too many people, too close contact. I’m guessing the Mall of America and Ridgedale [Center] would just be chaos right now,” shopper Jey Thoennes said. Jody Hansen, Mary Roiland and Jane Younghans have been friends since high school and it’s a...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Thanksgiving shopping lines were almost non-existent Thursday with most major retailers choosing to close for the holiday. It’s a change of pace compared to recent years where companies like Best Buy, Target and Walmart typically opened for at least part of Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday shopping season. Dr. Audrey Guskey, a Duquesne University marketing professor, says the pandemic has forced retailers to reevaluate opening on Thanksgiving, a polarizing topic that brings shoppers out in droves but has others saying stores should be closed to allow employees to spend the day with their families. (Photo Credit: KDKA) “Because of this year with COVID-19, we only have one major big box store open, which is Big Lots,” Guskey said. Many companies cited pandemic safety concerns and showing appreciation for employees during a challenging year as reasons for staying closed on Thanksgiving. Guskey adds opening on Thanksgiving was often not profitable for retailers because consumers who shopped on Thanksgiving typically did not shop on Black Friday. She says it will be interesting to see what retailers do next...
    CBS Detroit – The holiday season won’t be business-as-usual this year with many retailers opting to stay close on Thanksgiving. In the past retailers have liked to get a jump on Black Friday by offering Turkey Day hours. In an article by Hometown Life, they report that all the malls in south-east Michigan will be closed Thursday. Kelsey Kiefer is a marketing specialist for Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi. She says this is the first time they opted to be closed on Thanksgiving. “We’re closing down, allowing our tenants to spend time with their families that day,” she told Hometown Life. “We just thought considering the year it’s been, we’re following the trend that other malls are doing.” Twelve Oaks will be back at it bright and early from 7 am to 9 pm for Black Friday shoppers. They emphasize shoppers should still mask up and follow COVID-19 protocols. While the recent three-week closure by the MDHHS affects restaurants that cannot offer dine-in services, retailers are allowed to remain open. Twelve Oaks is offering a new program to entice shoppers...
    LONDON (AP) — The hand sanitizing stations are ready, the social distance markings in place. After a three-month shutdown under coronavirus restrictions, London’s Oxford Street is ready to spring back to life — but things will not quite look or feel “normal” for the British capital’s most famous shopping street. “Non-essential” retailers — those selling fashion, toys and books, among other items — are reopening Monday across England for the first time since the country went into lockdown in late March to try to halt the spread of the coronavirus. While it’s a moment that many business owners have eagerly looked forward to, they aren’t expecting shoppers to rush back to what could be a strange, sterile experience. Stores must meet Britain’s COVID-19 guidelines to ensure that shoppers and workers can stay safe. In many shops and malls, that means lining up to enter, using hand sanitizers at the door and following a one-way traffic system inside. Plastic screens will protect workers from shoppers at payment counters and some shops will only take cards, not cash. Browsing the...
