There are several types of Holiday Shoppers you will see or have seen already. Heck, you might even fall into one of these personality types. I know I do! Working in retail, I’ve already seen every personality type.
First, it’s hard to believe Christmas is only a week and a half away. Maybe it’s just me but with the last few weeks of temperatures closer to 50 or even 60, it’s hard to get into the Christmas spirit. That being said, I’m nearly done with my Holiday shopping. It helps when everyone told you exactly what they want.
So spill it, what kind of Holiday shopper do you fall under?
Picture this: It’s December 24th and 10 minutes before closing. This customer is in the store getting their last minute gifts. You are trying to get home to your family…Normally the shopper looks frazzled and in a bit of sheer panic. Personally I’ve been there and I know I’ve frustrated the employees in retail stores.
Gift Card Gerry
You get a gift card, you get a gift card…everyone gets a gift card! At a local running store, it’s always good to get a gift certificate because unless someone explicitly tells you what shoe they run in, then it’s impossible to know. Plus, who knows…today they want running shoes, a few days after Christmas maybe they want whatever’s on sale.
Early Bird Etta
They were asking about Christmas sales in July. By the time I publish this post, they’ve already bought Christmas gifts for 2017.
This person would hide in a hole during the Holidays if possible. Yet here they are at check out telling you why Christmas is awful, why even bother and whatever else they can complain about.
Forget those holiday shopping crowds. Everything for everyone is purchased online. There are no crowds to deal with and if a product is out of stock, it’s just back ordered.
Question for you: what kind of Holiday shopper do you consider yourself?
