Most still do their shopping offline.

NEW YORK — Despite their reputation for being fixated on technology, 53 percent of millennials make most of their purchases offline, according to a new survey.

The finding is part of the Millennial Shopping Report from CouponFollow, a coupon code website. The report looks at the purchasing decisions of Americans between the ages of 20-35 and the implications for retailers, both online and offline.

About 31 percent of millennials make the majority of purchases online via desktop, the survey found. And 16 percent make most of their purchases online via mobile device.

Interestingly, 58 percent of younger millennials (ages 20-23) make the majority of their purchases offline — up five percentage points from the generational average.

CouponFollow surveyed 1,000 millennial-aged (20–35 years old) Americans from all 50 states, across a broad economic scope.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
