NRF Forecasts Increased Consumer Spending for Easter
The NRF (along with BIGresearch, which actually conducted the study by interviewing about 8,300 people) has the average American on record as spending $116.59 to celebrate Easter last year. Which is a rather impressive amount. This year, though, the NRF believes the average consumer will spend $118.60, or roughly 1.7 percent more. And most of this money should be spent on food, clothing, gifts, candy, flowers, decorations, and greeting cards (with those categories listed in order of most money spent to least).
