Aussies to go Ho! Ho! Ho!

With an abundance of products to suit everyone from the fussiest of kids to the grooviest of grandmas, all at prices that put the retail giants to shame, it’s no wonder why nearly half of all Aussies (47.5%)* are planning to head online to shop this Christmas. And one of Australia’s favourite online department stores, is preparing for this surge, making the silly retail season just that bit easier on the bank balance, as well as the stress levels!

Boasting a catalogue of over 12,000 products at up to 80% off retail prices at the click of a button, promises that buying gifts will be as fun as giving and receiving them. Wrestling busy shopping malls is becoming a thing of the past with the ease of shopping online – so much so that even grandmas and grandpas are jumping onto the net! In fact, recently uncovered that this Christmas nearly half of Australians aged 55-65+ (49.33%)* are planning to shop online to save their pennies!

Saving money isn’t just on the minds of our oldies though, with 34% of 18-29 year olds also planning to buy gifts online this Christmas*. In between rising food costs for Christmas meals and ever-increasing gift lists for the kids, online shopping provides all Aussie families with the financial relief they’ve been waiting for. And of all avenues, is one you definitely want to explore this Christmas. As your one- stop (very convenient) shop, there’s guaranteed to be something from under the tree for every family member this year.
