Business and supply chains play a large role in most of the things we do, including holidays. Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and while the holiday focuses on family, food, and giving thanks, a tremendous amount of commercial activity goes on behind the scene to make it happen.
“According to one survey, the average consumer spent $165.14 on Thanksgiving tidings last year. You might think the biggest expense is food, but in fact, travel tops the list. More than 46.3 million Americans travel 50 miles or more to join their families, most by car. With Americans spending an average of $67.59 on Thanksgiving Day travel, this category grabs 41% of the spending pie.”
