According to a Google-commissioned Ipsos survey, 48% of holiday shoppers say they will shop online more for the holidays, with nearly two-thirds saying they will browse for gift ideas online rather than in-store.

More than a quarter of holiday shoppers said they will be researching gift ideas and purchases before they buy.

Searches for ‘curbside pickup near me’ has also increased 250% over the past year, suggesting the trend is not slowing down even as Canadians return to in-store holiday shopping.
