50. Million. Packages.
Following a trend that has lasted more than a decade and shows no sign of slowing down, holiday shopping online has hit record highs this year - as brick-and-mortar sales continue to decline. This affects property managers at multifamily residences, as well as shoppers waiting for their holiday gifts to arrive.
