Facing inflation and, for many, resumed student loan payments, the big question ahead of the holidays this year is how shoppers will spend.

While COVID-19 is restricting personal behaviors less, online shopping will continue to compete with brick-and-mortar stores. Target is coming off its first sales decline in years. And retailers and consumers alike are focusing on deals.

To learn how consumers approach this holiday season, the Star Tribune has put together a short list of questions to help inform our coverage as we plan to run a series of stories on all the retail trends of this holiday season.

We appreciate you sharing your story. We are gathering these responses for the purposes of our reporting, and hearing about your plans will help us focus our coverage. If you would like a Star Tribune reporter to reach out to you directly, please include your contact information in the form below!
