A 50-year low unemployment rate is expected to make for a strong holiday shopping season.

The National Retail Federation is forecasting sales will grow between 3.8% and 4.2% in November and December. Stores are expected to hire up to 590,000 seasonal workers to help handle the increase in shoppers.

According to NRF, 79% of shoppers are concerned tariffs will lead to higher prices, and some small businesses have already raised them.
