Mark Knoff-Thomas, New Market Business Association CEO, speaks to Jim about a survey showing how many people shop after having had a few drinks. The U.S survey of over 2000 alcohol consuming adults found that drinking and shopping is an estimated 48 BILLION dollar industry. Mark Knoff-Thomas also says the phenomenon of spending under the influence is also not restricted to online purchases, that bricks and mortar retailers also have their share of customers indulging in retail therapy after knocking back a few drinks.
