According to an early 2020 poll, nearly 25 percent of all Americans say they shop online at least once a month. Of course, that poll was taken before we were hit with a global pandemic and strict quarantining and lockdown rules. More people than ever before are doing their shopping online. And, of course, many of us are just aching to get back into a store and shop in person. We miss wandering aimlessly through the aisles of Target, Starbucks cup in hand while touching, well, almost everything. And we’re already a bit sad about our lack of mall visits come the holidays. While many shoppers aren’t letting COVID-19 hold them back, some of us are. Either way, a love for shopping unites most of us.
We’re so hooked on shopping, people have even made jokes specific not just to general shopping but to big sales events like Black Friday and Prime Day. These jokes and puns about shopping cover a little bit of everything: From retail therapy to mall rat life. They’re all hilarious… and maybe make us a bit nostalgic these days. Once you’ve read all these, if you’re still in the mood for more jokes, check our collection of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas jokes.
