Michael’s is seeking 16,000 new hires, while Gap Inc. announced 10,000 seasonal positions throughout its stores, including Banana Republic and Old Navy. JCPenney scaled down seasonal hiring dramatically this year and plans to add 1,700 workers nationwide.

Additionally, Amazon announced plans to hire roughly 100,000 new permanent employees to keep up with the booming e-commerce demand. Delivery companies UPS and FedEx will also boost hiring, with announced seasonal hires of 100,000 and 70,000 positions, respectively.

Retail sales for the months that include the holiday shopping season typically account for more than a quarter of annual retail sales.
