Over 14,600 Australian shoppers participated in the survey that found 39 per cent of Australian shoppers would be sending Santa on his way this Christmas Eve with a beer or a tipple of whiskey.

Shopper Data Group, the new research division of Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) media business Shopper Media Group, captures behavioural data on shoppers and provides bespoke research capabilities via it’s Smartlite digital panels .  When shoppers opt into the free Wi-Fi offered in over 200 shopping centres nationally, they are asked specific questions that reveal compelling insights.
