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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
