NEW YORK — Sales for the holiday season were expected to increase over last year for Web-based shopping, online grocers told SN. Most cited a stable economy and the continued growth of e-commerce for the projected increase.
“We expect sales to be up significantly,” FreshDirect President Steve Michaelson said. “We expect strong double-digit growth. We continue to grow at a strong rate, and New Yorkers have a tendency to turn even more to us during the holidays.”
