A “Christmas of Movie Tickets and Board Games” October 8, 2008

Posted by David Card in Media.

So says the NY Times and AT Kearney. Maybe not even movie tickets — 32% of online adults say they’re cutting back on going to the movies, though that figure is way less than driving (63%), shopping (60%), and vacating (44%) less.

It could quite frankly be one of the worst weve seen in 25 years, Dean Hillier, a partner and a retail specialist with A.T. Kearney, a management consultancy, said of the Christmas shopping season. It is shaping up to be a Christmas of movie tickets and board games, he said, not of big-screen televisions and vacations. This is the cocooning that we saw in the 80s, for goodness sakes, that were seeing coming back.

We’ve seen cocooning more recently than the 80’s.
