Americans Will Spend Billions This Weekend

When it comes to Independence Day, most of us are doing the same  thing and we won’t spend much money doing it. That’s the finding of the National Retail Federation’s latest study.

The survey found that 219-million Americans will party it up for July 4th  and 11.6% won’t. Those of us that choose to will spend just under $74  for a mix of parades, fireworks, travel, and the favorite activity,  cooking out.

We don’t just celebrate either, we go all out.

  • 53% will don patriotic apparel like t-shirts, bathing suits, or shoes
  • ...and 40% will put out patriotic decorations.
  • What about flying Old Glory? 65% already own a flag.
