Real-Time U.S. Retail Spending by the Second

Are you interested in current retail shopping statistics? Then, consider the fun, interactive Web site highlighted in this post.
Retale — a company that offers a mobile destination application for shoppers that incorporates retail circulars into a rich, interactive format — recently created a Web site with a real-time view of retail shopping:
“With a second-by-second tally of popular products sold and money spent at major retailers such as 7-Eleven, Wal-Mart, and McDonalds, ‘Retail in Real-Time’ is a head-spinning visualization of mass consumption in the United States. The infographic starts counting the moment you open it in your browser and displays eye-catching figures about where and how Americans are spending their money. From the number of Coca-Colas sold to the amount of firearms bought, you can watch the figures escalate as the clock starts ticking. In just the last 30 seconds for example, over 700 McDonalds burgers, 2,200 Dunkin’ Donuts, and 2,700 Starbucks coffees have been sold across America. If you hover your mouse over each box, you can even see daily totals for every product and retailer.”
