MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- It’s taken more than seven years, but mid-state consumer confidence has finally returned to pre-recession levels.
A quarterly survey conducted by Middle Tennessee State University says consumer outlook jumped more than 100 points in a single quarter.
Survey Director Dr. Tim Graeff says these are the best numbers he’s seen since 2007. He says consumers are feeling good about their current finances and even better about future prospects.
That’s good news for mid-state retailers in the midst of the all important holiday shopping season.
