Furthermore, these 'early shoppers' are highly likely (80%) to use the internet to research their purchases, and subsequently to buy (78%) online.
The research, consisting of P1's to the Today and Triple M networks, had a sample size of 3,000 people. There were a further 500 participants involved who are not P1's to SCA stations.
