More retailers will be using deep discounts to lure shoppers into stores this holiday season.

It's good news for consumers, but could mean bad news for businesses.

Roughly 63 percent of merchandise at department stores like Macy's and Lord & Taylor will be discounted this year, up from 60 percent last year, according to a study by Refinitiv in collaboration with StyleSage Co.

The study found retailers are also more aggressively sending out emails with promotions heading into Black Friday — 6.85 messages were being distributed per retailer per week, compared with 7.09 during the same period a year ago. The average promotion being highlighted is 40.8 percent off sticker price, Refinitiv found, up from 38.9 percent a year ago.

"Everyone is concerned about what is on sale, but what's interesting is what's not on sale," Refinitiv analyst Jharonne Martis said. She said some of the "hottest" holiday items, like sweaters and swimwear, have some of the lowest discounts.

"This suggests that retailers are luring shoppers in with other promotions, and hoping they will pay full price for those hot holiday gift items. If they are successful, this can help improve margins."

The concern among analysts — and something they're all watching closely — is that too much promotional activity will weigh on profits. Though steep sales can lure shoppers into stores, selling too much at low prices won't help companies' earnings, but instead can hurt them.

Retailers like Walmart and Target are already heading into this holiday season facing margin pressure due to heightened investments in their supply chains to keep apace with Amazon in getting online orders to customers. Their stocks recently took a hit because of this.

It's the department stores that are expected to have more deals. And it's the department stores like J.C. Penney that also rely the most on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to match or beat quarterly earnings estimates, Refinitiv found.
