Feedback at Five: Holiday Shopping

Posted: Updated:

The holiday shopping season started in record fashion on Thanksgiving night, and the spending spree lasted through the weekend -- including on Small Business Saturday.

A record 247 million shoppers visited stores or web sites over the four day weekend.

That's an increase of more than nine percent, and they spent more than they ever have before -- an estimated 59-point-1 billion dollars.

For tonight's Feedback at Five, we want to know: Did you do any holiday shopping over the weekend, or plan on doing any today for Cyber Monday?

And if so, what did you buy or what are you planning to buy?

Post your comments below and they might make it on the air tonight on 9&10 News at 5.
