Forrester: Travel Fears Will Boost Web Shopping for Holidays

Share this content:
Forrester Research, Cambridge, MA, said yesterday it is sticking with its forecast of online holiday sales growing 10 percent from 2000.


The firm said the increase may be a byproduct of the war against terrorism.


The prediction is based on Forrester's expectation that travel-wary consumers will send holiday gifts via Internet stores rather than visit families this year.


The 2001 sales could reach $11 billion, Forrester said.
