Local alternatives to Amazon abound for safe, convenient holiday shopping

Organizers of the Holiday Reimagined pop-up market at Edina’s Galleria mall had hoped to promote shopping local without drawing too big of a crowd. They required free, timed tickets to enter and provided contactless ways to shop.

But after Gov. Tim Walz announced new COVID-19 restrictions last month, they decided to cancel the in-person event altogether.

“We thought we had the ideal event planned, with safety being the number one thing in mind. Of course, bringing people together is what we love to do, but it’s the wrong thing to do right now,” said organizer Mollie Windmiller, owner and creative director at marketing company LAB MPLS.

Instead of an in-person market, Holiday Reimagined is now a contactless display, where window shoppers can purchase locally made goods like abstract painted ornaments or hand-embroidered sweatshirts by scanning a QR code with their phone. It’s running through December in the windows of the former Gabberts store.

Plenty of Minnesotans have pledged to shop local this upended holiday season to support community makers and small businesses. But with many holiday markets going virtual, keeping it local might be a bit harder this year.

Alternatives to Amazon still abound for those willing to make a little effort. Shoppers can explore Minnesota artisans’ work online in many places — from individual websites and Etsy pages to the shelves of local shops that are available online.

They also can outsource the search entirely by purchasing curated gift boxes, relying on virtual personal shoppers and curbside pickup at local shops or doing it the old-fashioned way: in-store shopping. (Many, but not all local shops are open, but limit the number of shoppers.)

Minneapolis candlemaker Emma Remer, who refills vintage containers with scented wax to make her Burnboss Candles (burnbosscandles.com), decided to offer virtual shopping appointments on her website in place of in-person markets.

“I’ve missed those experiences and connections this year and hope these online appointments can recreate a bit of that magic,” said Remer, who plans to shop locally online and through social media.

“I’ve seen many local, small businesses getting extremely creative with their approaches to holiday shopping this year,” she said. “It’s vital that we show up and support them now so they can be a part of our community for years to come.”

Virtual markets

Most of the holiday markets and pop-ups in the Twin Cities have gone virtual, with pages that link to vendors or display goods. You can shop them without leaving your couch — from the Black Business is Beautiful holiday market (blackbusinessisbeautiful.org/shop) to the online holiday shop created by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (shop.nemaa.org/holiday-shop/).

Some, like St. Paul’s European Christmas Market (stpaulchristmasmarket.org), also offer streaming music and story times with Santa. The American Swedish Institute’s Julmarknad virtual holiday market (asimn.org/virtual-julmarknad) includes free Zoom panels with some of the featured artists on Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. And the Minneapolis Craft Market (shop.mplscraftmarket.com), a digital marketplace with more than 230 makers, also hosts live shopping events on

Cyber Monday rings up record $10.8 billion in sales with Amazon touting ‘biggest holiday shopping season so far’

Cyber Monday wrapped up with $10.8 billion in sales, up 15.1% from last year and setting a record for the biggest online sales day in U.S. history, according to Adobe Analytics data.

“Cyber Monday continued to dominate the holiday shopping season, becoming the biggest online shopping day in U.S. history, despite early discounts from retailers,” said Taylor Schreiner, director at Adobe Digital Insights.

“Throughout the remainder of the holiday season, we expect to see record sales continue and curbside pickup to gain even more momentum as shoppers avoid crowds and potential shipping delays.”

Mobile accounted for 37% of sales on Cyber Monday, Adobe said.

Cyber Monday discounts included as much as 28% off computers. Shoppers should expect discounts to lessen by 5% to 10% across many categories as we get closer to Christmas Day, according to Adobe.

Still Marshal Cohen, NPD Retail’s chief industry adviser, notes on Twitter that “Cyber Week continues,” as his inbox fills with promotions.

“Either Monday wasn’t big enough or we are just caught in one long continual promotion from the beginning of November,” he tweeted.

BMO Capital Markets analysts observed Cyber Monday promotions that held flat year-over-year, as well as throughout the Black Friday shopping weekend. Some retailers, like Urban Outfitters Nike Inc. and L Brands Inc.’s Bath & Body Works actually became less promotional on Cyber Monday.

“[W]e expect ongoing upside for retail and into next year and believe, for the first time in a while, the power lies in the hands of the retailers and their inventory management; the question will be who chooses to hold the line versus cross it,” wrote analysts led by Simeon Siegel.

So far this holiday season, Adobe says online shoppers have spent $106.5 billion, up 27.7% from last year.

Amazon.com Inc. says that, through Cyber Monday, “2020 has been the largest holiday shopping season so far in our company’s history.” Amazon, as is the company’s usual practice, did not provide numbers to illustrate that statement, but said that world-wide sales at small- and medium-size grew 60%.

Numerator data found Amazon was “the big winner” for the weekend with 19% of total spend, or $1 of every $5 spent.

Amazon kicked off its holiday shopping season with a delayed Prime Day shopping event in October.

Amazon’s bestsellers for the season so far include President Barack Obama’s memoir “A Promised Land,” Revlon Inc.’s One-Step Hair Dryer, and Amazon’s own Echo Dot.

Shopify Inc. says sales for its merchants reached $5.1 billion over the long weekend, up 76% between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Shopify merchants are largely small and independent brands.

U.S. consumers spent an average of $89.20 per order with New York, Los Angeles and London among the top cities.

Amazon says 2020 holiday shopping season is its biggest yet

Amazon says this holiday season is breaking records. 


Angela Lang/CNET

In a year that’s been anything but ordinary, Amazon on Tuesday said it still managed to have its “biggest holiday season to date,” though the company didn’t share overall numbers to demonstrate just how big it was. 

Amazon said in a blog post that independent businesses selling on the platform are “seeing record demand from customers so far this holiday season in the U.S. and around the world.” These businesses surpassed $4.8 billion in global sales from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, an increase of more than 60% compared to last year, Amazon says.

The e-commerce giant offered a slew of deals for the holiday shopping season on everything from TVs to streaming devices to smartwatches (some of which are still available). Amazon says a record number of customers have been shopping early and supporting small- and medium-sized businesses. The new Echo Dot has been a top seller, the company notes, as well as the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and the Shark IQ Robot Self-Empty Robot Vacuum, among other items.

Consumers spent $9 billion during Black Friday, up 21% from the previous year, says Adobe Analytics. Cyber Monday was the largest U.S. shopping day ever, according to Adobe, pulling $10.8 billion, up more than 15% from the previous year.

Amazon just made a record start to the holiday shopping season as retail goes huge online

Amazon has reported a record-breaking start to the holiday shopping season, as the switch to online retail gathers pace.

The internet shopping giant said the period from the middle of October through to Cyber Monday has been “the largest holiday shopping season so far” in the company’s history.

Amazon did not reveal details of total spending across its operations, but it did offer some data on shopping habits so far.

The company said that independent businesses selling on Amazon — nearly all of which are small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) — saw worldwide sales growing by more than 60% year-over-year to $4.8 billion between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The company said that over 71,000 SMBs worldwide have passed $100,000 in sales this holiday season to date, and that US SMBs have sold an average of 9,500 products per minute. In Europe, the European Commission recently said it believes that Amazon is breaching EU competition rules by unfairly using independent sellers’ data as part of its own planning “to the detriment of the other marketplace sellers”.

Amazon also said that US best-sellers during the holiday season so far include its Echo Dot device and Barack Obama’s book A Promised Land, and that more than twice as many customers asked its Alexa digital assistant for recipes and cooking advice this Thanksgiving compared to last year.

The COVID-19 crisis is expected to drive spending online, with record gains for e-commerce: Adobe recently predicted this year will see $189 billion in online sales — effectively two years’ worth of growth in e-commerce in one year.

Adobe is predicting Black Friday to reach $10 billion in online sales this year — up from just under $8 billion last year. And even though many will be shopping from home, that doesn’t mean all that spending will be done on a PC. Adobe predicts consumers will do 42 percent of their shopping from smartphones this holiday season, with an estimated $28 billion more spent using smartphones this year than during the 2019 holiday.
