  1. Snapchatters visit big box stores twice a month on average.
  2. They tend to hit the aisles most on Saturdays.
  3. Only on weekdays, ages between 18-24 years old are more likely than any other age group to be in-store — but once the weekend rolls around, it’s 13-17 year-olds that browse the aisles most.
  4. They’re 8% more likely to visit big box stores on those days, compared to the beginning or end of the month.

When it comes to places that big-box shoppers prefer to visit before and after a visitation to Big Box Stores, the report shows that:

  1. When Snapchatters head to big box stores, they are more likely to pregame with a bite to eat or some recreational shopping.
  2. They’re likely heading to American or Chinese restaurants, juice shops, sporting goods stores, or toy stores, before their visitation to big box stores.
  3. But, after big-box shoppers finish their purchases, they focus on self-care and healthy living — frequenting hair or nail salons, farmers markets, gyms, or yoga studios.
