Cyber Monday Brings in Many Online Shoppers

Cyber Monday is known as the kickoff to the online shopping season.  All day shoppers have been logging on to take advantage of free shipping and other one day offers as they gear up for the holiday season. 

Holiday shopping is in full swing, but on Monday there are no long lines for these shoppers to wait in. "You can find a lot of good deals online, it's a lot easier than going into the store most of them are offering free shipping, so it makes it more convenient than having to drive there," said online shopper Nick Deschenes. 

According to the National Retail Federation almost 84% of retailers have some kind of promotion for Cyber Monday.  "We have some I-pods on sale that you can get online that you cannot get in the store, it puts customers in the online store instead of in the store so it makes it easy on them so they don't actual have to come in the store," said Best Buy Store Services Manager Jeremy Williams. 

"Here at Circuit City we have the one price, one promise which means that all of our prices online are going to be the same as they are in store so you can shop online and come on in and pick that item up in store," said Circuit City Sales Manager Andy Rogers. 

And stores are noticing on Monday many people are choosing to stay in to get their shopping done. "I believe a lot of people are we are getting a lot of online traffic today more than usual," said Williams.   

"We definitely see an increase in people buying online and picking up in store Cyber Monday is a pretty big deal for us," said Rogers.  If you haven't started yet, you still have time to get some cyber shopping done to on Monday. Most stores' promotions run till midnight or even all day Tuesday.
