It was mentioned on WalletHub.com that 43% of people that took the survey said they did some shopping to really just relax, so some retail therapy. Even though the percentage of people doing comfort shopping is somewhat high, they are still worried about their packages being safe when they are delivered to their house, according to Wallet Hub.
