The Holiday Shopping Season
According to the National Retail Federation,

the shopping season from Black Friday and Cyber Monday to Christmas represents 19% of annual retail sales. November and December 2020 Holiday sales grew 8.2% ($777 billion) over 2019. Meticulous planning, forecasting, and execution months in advance are required for chain members to have goods on-site and delivery capabilities in place for the month-long massive shopping event.

WEEK 1 DISCUSSION POST
The week’s readings include a mix of interdisciplinary and light-hearted resources looking at the holiday supply chain. Find at least one other recent resource for support. For your post:
What support is needed from chain members to ensure inventory in retail outlets?
Consider resources required for delivery from outlets with physical locations.
Using the resource beyond this week’s readings, provide a real-world example of how brick and mortar stores are adding delivery to buying channel options (from a supply chain perspective). (The article should be less than two years old.)
This post should be 2 paragraphs in length (150-200 words). Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite in the body of the post and add a reference list in APA format. NOTE: failure to use research with accompanying citations to support content will result in reduced scoring “Level 2-Developing” for Quality of Initial Posting, Critical Thinking, and Reference to Supporting Readings/Information Literacy on the grading rubric.
