Christmas Day is bigger than Black Friday for UK ecommerce retailers

In the UK, consumers are most likely to indulge in online shopping on Christmas Day. In 2017, traffic to online retailer websites on Christmas Day was almost double (45%) the December monthly average. Three days before New Year’s Eve (28 December) purchases were more than a quarter (26%) up on the December average.

High street retailers dominate the festive cheer across social

The death of the high-street might not be upon us just yet this holiday season with Primark taking the crown as the brand whose Christmas related posts garnered the biggest engagement levels with over 1.5 million interactions (likes, comments views, shares) on Instagram.
