A double-digit decrease (11%) for retail store sales and traffic has been recorded for November 2014, according to recent findings.

However, the explanation for the double-digit decrease lies in the fact that customers preferred online shopping more around holiday season, especially around Thanksgiving, period which was accompanied by discounts and promotions, according to the monthly ‘Retail Performance Pulse’ survey issued by the Big Data analytics for physical stores company RetailNext.

The RetailNext ‘Retail Performance Pulse’ is a monthly composite of in-store metrics developed from specialty and large format retail stores on the RetailNext analytics platform and located within the continental US.
