SPOKANE--Christmas is almost here and nationally, holiday sales are in a bit of a slump. Monday, local retailers tried to lure last minute shoppers with extended hours and special deals.
Northtown Mall’s parking lot was already packed by noon. Shoppers worked frantically to get everyone checked off their list.
Big chains weren’t the only stores open Christmas Eve. Small shops and boutiques, like Fringe on the South Hill, were also very busy. In fact employees say Monday was one of their craziest days of the year.
