Findings from the Motorola Solutions annual holiday shopper study highlighted the impact on the shopper experience across various age demographics.
Some key highlights include:
Nearly one-half of Gen Y shoppers, 38 percent of Gen X shoppers and 32 percent of Baby Boomer shoppers felt better connected to product information than associates.
64 percent of Gen Y and 52 percent of Gen X shoppers accessed a personal mobile device for shopping-related activities compared to only 37 percent of Boomers and less than 15 percent of pre-Boomer shoppers.
Nearly one-half (48 percent) of shoppers reported that helpful store associates motivated them to spend more in-store.
72 percent of shopping-related walkouts resulted in lost sales – an average loss per abandonment of $156.
