Despite all of the perceived setbacks 2020 and 2021 delivered to students and teachers alike, as we head back to the classroom in 2022, the National Retail Federation (NRF) once again surveyed a group of 7,830 consumers during July to get a better readout on shopping intentions this holiday season.

Worth noting that the NRF also cites this expected spend in 2021 to be the highest in their survey’s history.
