Evil Shoppers

More than 1-in-5 respondents in a national survey say they shopped in a store on Thanksgiving Day.

No turkey for you, heathens.

Fourteen percent said they shopped online on the holiday.  Two-thirds reported having a clue and doing no shopping that day.

Why am I going on about this?  First, because I just stumbled across the survey, which was conducted from Nov. 29 - Dec. 3.  Second, because I need to grade but I really don't want to -- thus this post.

Sixty-three percent say they did not use a mobile device while shopping.  The other numbers were:
  • 14 percent said they used mobile devices to research products found in-store.
  • 16 percent said they used them to compare prices
  • 11 percent took pics or notes with their mobile device about products
  • 19 percent used the phone as an actual phone (clearly not teenagers) and called people to ask about products they saw
  • 7 percent were unsure. Not sure about what.
