Last Minute Shoppers Flock to Stores
Retailers say they’re expecting big crowds Tuesday evening as last-second shoppers try to finish their holiday shopping.
The website ShopperTrak says sales are down about three percent this season from last year.
Experts say that’s because shoppers had fewer days to shop this year because of how late Thanksgiving fell. Most shoppers have 32 days from Thanksgiving to Christmas. This year they had only 26.
Many major retailers like Best Buy, Khol’s and the Fayette Mall will close at 6pm Tuesday.
Kmart will stay open until 10pm. Target will stay open until 11pm.
