Easter Shopping Tips from 2ndVote

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend an average of $150 per person when it comes to shopping for the Easter holiday. It may come as a surprise to some that Easter is now the 4th largest consumer holiday after Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Mother’s Day.

Interestingly, “discount stores” are the top shopping destinations (59%) associated with the Easter holiday, with candy being the top item purchased (89%).

But, do your retail destinations match your values this weekend? Many “big box” stores like Target have concerning records on the issues and staying informed is the best way to make sure your shopping dollars don’t fund the left’s agenda, especially when you’re shopping #AnywhereButTarget.

That’s why we’ve put together a quick list of retailers to make that make better options for candy and gift purchases this weekend:

Winn Dixie – 3.1
99 Cents Only Stores – 3
Aldi – 3
Dollar Tree – 3
Family Dollar – 3
Food City – 3
Schnucks – 3

Also, here are three producers of candy and other treats that have stayed neutral on all the issues (and a couple you might want to avoid).

Godiva – 3
Harry & David – 3
Russell Stover – 3

Hershey’s – 2
Mondelez International (Cadbury Eggs) – 1.6

Nestle – 2.4
