A new survey from Junior Achievement USA shows that a majority of teens (54%) plan to do much of their shopping at brick-and-mortar discount stores like Walmart and Target this holiday season. Less than half of teens (46%) said that they would be doing much of their shopping online, while about a third (34%) planned to head out to the shopping malls. These were followed by electronics or gaming stores (20%), department stores (13%), and national clothing chains (10%). Local small businesses, such as boutiques and consignment stores, ranked much lower (3%). The survey of 1,000 teens was conducted in early November by ORC International for JA.
