home more often. Conversely, 60% of shoppers say they are eating out
less and only 14% of shoppers plan to dine out more in 2024.
Over half (52%) of shoppers say grocery store prepared foods offer
good value to dining out/takeout, Rick Stein, vice president of education
program development at FMI, said during the webinar.
In fact, seafood deli sales increased 3.4% in the third quarter,
according to Circana.
" Restaurant-like items that are created in the supermarket but sold
out of the deli department are doing very well, " Roerink said.
Overall, Roerink expects more holiday gatherings at home with
friends and family as - compared to during the peak COVID-19 years
- " most surveys are showing a return to more normal times in terms of
party size and dinner lineups. "
The National Retail Federation also expects record spending on all
products during the holiday season, projecting a 3% to 4% increase to
between $957.3 billion and $966.6 billion.
" This year, a whole new set of dynamics is in place, " said Jack
Kleinhenz, chief economist for NRF. " The average household remains
on relatively solid financial footing despite pressures from still-high
inflation, stringent credit conditions and elevated interest rates. "
Additionally, recent revisions to government data indicate that
consumers haven't drawn down as much of their pandemic savings as
believed earlier, and savings are providing a buffer to support spending,
Kleinhenz said.
" The overall story for this holiday season is that it looks very good. "
The overall US economy is proving to be more resilient than
anticipated, Kleinhenz added.
" I expect the recent rhythm of spending will continue into the
holiday season and that consumers will continue to spend on a range of
items and experiences but at a slower pace. "
It's the economy, stupid
On the other hand, economic concerns persist. Thirty-nine percent
of shoppers said their household finances have gotten worse in 2023,
according to FMI.
And more holiday shoppers - 43% - rate their personal financial
situation as fair or poor than last year, according to Circana. Nearly half
(48%) of holiday shoppers say rising costs and other expenses will lead
them to spend less this holiday season.
Consumers plan to spend an average of $754 on holiday shopping
this year - below last year's spending intentions, Circana found. As a
result, 2023 holiday season spending may fall short compared to last
year by as much as 2.5% during November and December.
FMI is urging consumers to budget ahead and plan holiday meals " as
far in advance as possible, " Sarasin said. They can also take advantage of
supermarkets' registered dietitians who can help shoppers plan meals
or suggest different recipes and ingredients that could be substituted for
traditional holiday options, according to Sarasin.
