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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
