Christmas is right around the corner. Here's how inflation could affect holiday shopping.


  • Back-to-school shopping may be over, but holiday shopping is just starting.
  • Easier supply chains mean fewer out-of-stock items, but inflation means more low-priced options.
  • Shortages will be concentrated in certain items. Consumers should snag those as soon as possible.
  • Retailers are expecting game consoles to be in high demand this Christmas

Now that back-to-school shopping is about finished, retail analysts say it’s time to begin thinking about holiday shopping to avoid disappointing kids.

And the head of Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, acknowledges that inflation will continue to influence the choices that families make.

Snarled supply chains left retailers and consumers contending with empty shelves last year. This year, supply chains have eased, and retailers have planned better, but certain items may still fall short of demand, some analysts warned.
