Hara Partners wants to wish everyone a happy Independence Day! The Fourth of July is arguably one of the most celebrated holidays in America and not surprisingly, it is projected to affect e-commerce in a big way. Studies have found that currently:
$600 million are spent on fireworks
$557 million are spent on burgers and burger toppings
$111 million are spent on charcoal
$94 million are spent on lighter fluid.
All that money probably goes to the barbecues that 68.6% of people who will attend and the 48.7% of people who will watch or set their own fireworks. As time progresses, experts predict that 10% of those sales will be made online.
Below are some patriotic infographics provided by nextopia.com to elaborate on this topic. Cue the fireworks.
