Frazier Allen: Why Holiday Shopping Begins in Summer

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Big-box retailers increasingly push consumers to forget the date on the calendar and purchase back-to-school items, pumpkins and Christmas trees in the same shopping trip. Known as “Christmas Creep,” this early arrival of the holidays is a tactic retailers commonly employ in their race against time toward a profitable holiday season.

As much as 30 percent of a store’s annual sales can come during the holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the largest retail industry trade association. Stocking holiday merchandise sooner gives retailers a jump on the competition and extends the amount of time consumers have to buy, for good reason.

Discover the reasons retailers start the holidays sooner and how those decisions impact store operations.

Frazier Allen: Retirement Readiness Takes Getting in Step

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – When Fidelity Investments asked couples how much they think they will need to save for retirement to maintain their current lifestyle, 48% had “no idea.”

Forty-seven percent disagreed on the amount needed (the disagreement highest among those closest to retirement). In some ways, that’s not surprising – many couples disagree on financial and lifestyle matters long before they’ve stopped working. But while adjustments (hopefully) can be made and differences resolved, things can become more difficult in retirement.

Many couples don't agree on when, where or how they're going to retire.
