Christmas shoppers say they want electronics -- a video game console, an iPhone, maybe wireless ear buds. The crowds will fill the stores, looking for those goodies, on Black Friday once again.
Online shopping is growing, but smart shopping expert Trae Bodge says more than 60 percent of all purchases will be made in-store.
“People still do like -- especially when it comes to holiday shopping -- to touch and feel,” Bodge says, “and experience those products before they purchase them for the people on their list.”
And, some people don’t want to wait for Black Friday.
“You can have your meal with your family,” she says, “then all pile into cars and go shopping. That's what a lot of people are doing, but if it's not for you, then there is always Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”
It's something of a tradition now, but what's really bringing those shoppers back is the knowledge that great prices are waiting for them.
