As if you haven't had enough of this, comScore released its final numbers for online shopping during the holiday period. It now estimates that non-travel online retail grew 29% year over year, higher than its earlier estimates. Travel grew by 28%.

More interesting was its list of top traffic gainers (defined by average weekly unique users). Among the publicly traded companies, top gainers were:

Blockbuster.com up 387%
Overstock.com up 87%
Home Depot up 72%
Neiman Marcus up 71%
Wal-Mart up 68%
Nordstrom up 66%
May Department Stores up 59%
Target up 57%

Trend watch: notice the dramatic growth of offline retailers?
Stock impact: wonder what Netflix thinks of Blockbuster's growth...
