Consumers are expected to spend more this holiday season

Posted: Updated:

The National Retail Federation is predicting consumers will spend more this holiday season - at least about three and a half percent more.  But there is one big unknown- how the impact of hurricanes Harvey and Irma will affect spending along the gulf coast and Florida.  Consumers who are repairing and rebuilding their homes may have to limit their holiday shopping.  Additionally, some stores damaged during the storms might not reopen in time for the holidays.
