Retailers Say Holiday Season Online Sales Are Up, Inventory Low

This holiday season’s shopping has been decent. While Black Friday was affected by the pandemic, online sales are up. The Arizona Retailers Association Executive Director, Michelle Ahlmer, says inventory is going fast.

"People are waiting till the last minute, then they find that the inventory is low, or that if they have to buy online, shipping could be an issue in terms of getting it there before Christmas,” Ahlmer said. 

Ahlmer says toys, electronics and housewares are the most popular items right now. But there is not one particular item that has been deemed the 2020 Holiday Season must-have.
