Fridays and Saturdays are busy at retail shops across the country, and things were no different for Georgia retail businesses.

 

 

Fridays were particularly big, as 19% of all retail revenue in Georgia came in on that day alone. On average, only 34% of retailers keep their doors open on Sundays in Georgia, making it easily the slowest day of the week overall.

 

Among transacting businesses, Saturday was the busiest day of the week in terms of foot traffic, with Georgia retail businesses processing an average of 18 transactions per day.

 

Georgians spend more per transaction on weekdays, with Tuesdays claiming the largest average ticket size of the week at $80.41 per ticket. Locals are the most frugal on Sundays, when lower-ticket-item shops are perhaps more likely to remain open than higher-end boutiques.
