What Kind of Holiday Shopper Are You?

October 20, 2009



(NewsUSA) – According to more than 2,400 participants in an
online quiz conducted by Shop.com, an e-commerce multi-merchant marketplace, last-minute holiday
shopping may soon be a thing of the past. Nearly 44 percent think it's never too early to start
shopping.

This "Always on the Lookout" holiday shopper is the current winning personality type,
followed closely by the "One for You, One for Me" holiday shoppers – those who pick up extra gifts
for themselves along the way.

"Ninety percent of our respondents are women and as a busy working mom myself, I appreciate
the convenience of shopping online," said Cori Tuck, merchant director at Shop.com. "When you're
responsible for your family's holiday traditions, including buying gifts for a dozen people,
anything you can do online at night with the kids asleep truly gives you cheer."

With Shop.com's universal OneCart, consumers can use one shopping cart and one
checkout to buy gifts for everyone on their lists. Shop.com offers products from name brand
retailers and specialty stores in categories ranging from apparel, toys and home furnishings to
computers, books, DVDs and consumer electronics.
