2014 back-to-school survey
Rising to the head of the class

The Internet is climbing as one of the top shopping destinations; mobile and digital continue to influence the purchase process; and the dedicated summer shopping season is seemingly of less importance as consumers will wait until the last minute to shop. It is no longer your parents’ back-to-school season and we are exploring what is driving consumers’ decisions in 2014.
