American Men Spend More Time Shopping Than Women Do

According to a new study, American men spend more time shopping than women do. The study, which was conducted by the market research firm NPD Group, found that men spend an average of 5.5 hours per week shopping, while women spend an average of 4.9 hours per week shopping.

The study also found that men are more likely than women to shop online (36 percent of men vs. 28 percent of women) and to use a mobile device to do so (19 percent of men vs. 11 percent of women).

Interestingly, the study found that men are more likely than women to say that they enjoy shopping (63 percent of men vs. 54 percent of women).

So what explains the difference between men’s and women’s shopping habits?

NPD Group’s chief industry analyst, Marshal Cohen, believes that it has to do with the fact that men are more likely than women to be single and to have disposable income. “Men have more money to spend, and they don’t have to consult with anyone else before they make a purchase,” Cohen said.

He also believes that men are more likely to shop because they enjoy the challenge of finding the best deals. “Men like to bargain hunt,” Cohen said. “They get a high out of finding the right product at the right price.”

So there you have it: American men spend more time shopping than women do because they have more money to spend and because they enjoy the challenge of finding the best deals.

  1. I think the study is interesting because it shows that men and women shop differently. Women may be more likely to consult with others before making a purchase, while men may be more likely to enjoy the challenge of finding the best deals.
