Says Coresight Research’s CEO and Founder, Deborah Weinswig: “With our research showing most consumers anticipate doing their holiday shopping earlier this year, it’s the perfect time to launch. The extra time before December will help alleviate every retailer’s nightmare in a year involving skyrocketing online sales: order processing, fulfillment, and shipment delays. The timing, coupled with what we’ve learned from Alibaba’s Singles’ Day – a newly created shopping holiday that turned into a resounding success for the Chinese retail platform – are key aspects of our decision to band together to create this event.”

“Adding new and easy ways for our users to earn rewards has been critical to our mission. The 10.10 Shopping Festival and our Shopper Appreciation Weekend extend this even further,” said Dave Fisch, general manager of Shopkick. “As the economic toll from the global pandemic continues to weigh on consumers, we want to make it even more rewarding for them to accomplish their holiday shopping, whether in store or online.”

“Fashwire is thrilled to be a partner with Coresight Research for its launch of the 10.10 Shopping Festival,” stated Kimberly Carney, Founder & CEO of Fashwire. “10.10’s philanthropic mission is a powerful way to connect consumers to brands and retailers while also giving back and presenting a great opportunity to help boost sales now and throughout the holiday shopping season.”
