Cyber Monday brings last chance for holiday deals
BATON ROUGE- The holiday shopping season continues today with Cyber Monday. Retail experts expect about 121 million people to hunt for online deals.
The shopping surge began right after Thanksgiving for some. Hundreds of people flocked to stores around Baton Rouge to find the best Black Friday deals. Retail experts say this year's Black Friday crowds weren't as big as they've been in years past, which could have something to do with more people turning to online shopping.
The big shopping weekend continued on Small Business Saturday. Many local shoppers made their way to the Denham Springs Antique District to scavenge for low prices. Small business owners say overall sales were a little lower than in previous years, but they still appreciate the support.
"The community is everything," said local business owner, Frankie Relan. "Without them we're not here."
Online retailers hope to see record sales today as shoppers rush to cross remaining items off their Christmas list. This year marks ten years since the first-ever Cyber Monday.
