Local Business Expert Says Retailers Need to Prepare for Holiday Rush

A local business experts says retailers are likely to be busier than they think this year.

Arroyo Grande, CA, United States - December 7, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Many local shop owners are wringing their hands this year as the general knowledge is that most people will do most of their Christmas shopping online, but one local business expert says they shouldn’t count themselves out of the picture just yet.

“Some recent studies are showing that not everyone is going to spend all of their holiday cash online,” says a spokesman from FindUsLocal.com, a local business directory that uses GEO technology to automatically match a visitor’s location with a customized home page that shows them only the results from their local area. “In fact, some of the findings are surprising.”

He says that the youngest generation, Generation Z, will spend about 35 percent of their Christmas cash in brick and mortar stores, while Generation X will spend 48 percent of their money in local shops. Baby Boomers will also spend 48 percent locally, while seniors will spend 33 percent of their cash in their local community.

Another recent survey shows that 71 percent of Millennials visit multiple local shops to find the best deal they can, and 76 percent of them first look online before buying, but then 66 percent of them end up buying from a local business.

“What all of this means,” says the spokesman, “Is that if your local business isn’t yet listed in a local business directory, you’re probably missing out on a lot of business, especially this time of year. The surveys indicate that of those people who look online to conduct research about a product, a good percent of them will end up making the purchase from a local store.”

Creating a local business listing is free, and most local business experts recommend that every local business owner have at least one.

JACKSON, Miss. — The first time John Lewis traveled to Mississippi in 1961, he was arrested and jailed with other Freedom Riders, black and white, who challenged segregation in a bus station. Lewis, who is African-American, remembers going into a restroom labeled for white men only. A Jackson police officer told him and other young people in the group to leave. They refused.

And that was my introduction to the state of Mississippi and the city of Jackson," Lewis told The Associated Press on Thursday in a phone interview from Atlanta. After...

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The Latest on the Pyeongchang Olympics (all times local): 1:10 p.m. The Americans secured their worst showing in modern-era Olympic women's figure skating with Mirai Nagasu failing to get any lift on her triple axel and popping a triple lutz.

Glitches or not, Nissan starts testing semi-autonomous rides

Feb 23, 2018

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Starting next month, Nissan Motor Co. is testing on regular roads what it calls "a robo-vehicle mobility service." Called Easy Ride, it uses a cell-phone app to book semi-autonomous driven rides. But Easy Ride won't necessarily be easy if poor internet connections mean it won't work at all. Nissan says that feedback from the 300 people who have signed up to try out Easy Ride will be used to fine-tune the app. The Japanese automaker hopes to roll it out as a commercial service in the early 2020s. Details, including pricing, are undecided. The service was developed...
