Sun Journal Interviews McConnon About Holiday Shopping

James McConnon, an economics professor at the University of Maine and a University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialist, was interviewed by the Sun Journal for an article titled “Shopping forecasts call for increase in holiday spending.” McConnon said holiday shoppers are predicted to spend between 2.4 and 3.9 percent more this year, even though consumer confidence is still cautious. He said with the shorter shopping season, retailers are going to provide good deals and consumers will be looking for them.
