Experts are forecasting retail sales in 2012 to end with a 6% growth despite a drop in April and May. Kiplinger (economic forecasters) stated, "Warm weather early in the year pulled seasonal sales forward, pushing first-quarter sales higher at the expense of second-quarter sales." With sales push trending earlier than expected, Holiday buying patterns are likely to follow with the same early start.
For the upcoming holiday season, "The predictions from ICSC and the NRF have, so far, been in the 2.5% to 3.0% increase range." ~ According to Chainlinks 2012 National Retail Forecast
