Consumers are still adjusting to the way they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the looming pandemic. According to a survey from the National Retail Federation, 49 percent of U.S. adults said they planned to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year. While this can traditionally be a holiday where you meet up with your friends or attend parades, significantly fewer did so in 2021.
The luck of the Irish is still in the air, though, because 92 percent of those who celebrated planned to make St. Patrick’s Day purchases. Respondents planned to spend $40.77 on average, for a total $5.1 billion nationwide. With hope on the horizon and vaccines lifting shoppers’ spirits, 2022 spending and participation rates for the holiday should be higher.
