Industry Experts Predict Purchasing Shifts for Holiday Season

It’s been an unpredictable year and the holiday season will likely be no different, but that's never stopped anyone from making predictions. In this case, Drizly's Bev Alc Insights division spoke to retailers, wholesalers, and brand leaders about what they're expecting this holiday season.

Additionally, many retailers note gift sets are in high demand this season.
