According to government data, online and other non-store sales were up 10.4% to $682.8 billion in 2018. That’s even higher than the pre-season forecast from the National Retail Federation.

In 2019, the NRF’s forecast calls for a 10%-12% percent increase in online sales, and that’s in line with the thinking of about half of the participants in the latest HBSDealer poll question.

Government data also estimates that total retail sales during 2018 grew 4.6% over 2017 to $3.68 trillion. That result also exceeded the forecast from the National Retail Federation of at least 4.5%  growth.
