I have to admit that I was surprised at how little traffic there was both on the roads and in the stores! It seems to me that the stores were much busier in past years. I know it was the middle of the week and there are still 10 days before Christmas, but I expected more people. What has been your experience this year with your holiday shopping?
The other thing that I noticed was that the toy department seemed a little "slim" this year in comparison to previous years - in fact I don't think that any extra toys were brought in like the stores usually do. What I did see was an expansion of the holiday decorations, pre-packaged gift sets and candy. The electronics department was definitely into the holiday spirit and seemed to feature more than the usual array.
