Rosen says just tell your friends and family to expect a lovely New Years Gift this year ! "It's not going to get there in time for Christmas. So I think the best thing a last-minute shopper can do is tell your family and friends it's a way to celebrate seeing 2020 in your rear view mirror!"
Rosen continues, "You wait to the last minute to go shopping, coupled with truck driver shortages, air freight shortages and an entire logistics program rolling out a vaccine --- it's overwhelming! The three biggest shippers (FedEx, The Postal Service and UPS) together hired an extra 250,000 people to work this holiday season. They were anticipating it. In fact they encouraged retailers to offer specials in late October, November and even into early December. "
