Retailers Try To Attract Last-Minute Holiday Shoppers
On the Monday before Christmas, retailers are offering a lot of deals to get the business of people who still have some shopping to do.
For example, Best Buy is offering a $100 discount off its nearly-$400 Apple Watch Sport – that’s double the store’s Black Friday discount. According to the National Retail Federation, as much as 40 percent of holiday shopping happens in the 10 days leading up to Christmas.
Here & Now’s Robin Young talks with Jill Schlesinger of CBS News about the last-minute shopping season.
