Gas prices to increase online shopping

April 8th, 2008 by Mariah would like to share with all our members in the Bed and Breakfast Industry, about a predicted trend for online purchases. This is great news for all of you who are promoting and selling Gift Certificates, Special Deals, Last minute Getaways and Package Deals. Senior Retail analyst, Heather Dougherty of Nielsen//NetRatings said “Online sales should see robust growth this holiday season, partially aided by rising gas and heating prices, as consumers seek to maximize their holiday budgets,” This predicts for a solid cyber-selling season.
