Prepping for the holidays

How retailers can make this year’s critical shopping season merry

Each holiday season, shoppers spend record sums. This year will be no different.

But are retailers doing the right things to get ready for this all-important season of spending? Are they giving customers what they want for the holidays? And are they getting what they want in return—their attention, their sales, and their loyalty?

Whether retailers emerge merry or with a holiday hangover will depend on today’s strategic choices.
