MasterCard Advisors’ SpendingPulse reveals jewellery one of top-performing industries this holiday


According to MasterCard Advisors Vice President Sarah Quinlan, “From dining out to planning trips to memorable pieces of jewellery, we saw increases in those categories that will drive future stories beyond just a package exchanged with a friend or family member.”

SpendingPulse found that overall holiday retail sales increased by 5.5 per cent with help from the extra shopping day this year. The strong performers included women’s clothing and casual dining. CJ
