Sales entice shoppers for shortened shopping season
By Sarah Te Slaa, Multimedia Producer/ Anchor - email
The mall has extended hours until Christmas.
There's only six full shopping days left until Christmas to get all the gifts for people on your list.
Despite the increase in online shopping nationwide, officials with the Southern Hills Mall in Sioux City expect a rush of shoppers this week. They say, sales have been good and the mall's been busy.
Because Thanksgiving was later this year, there were six fewer days to shop. With the shortened holiday shopping season, stores are luring in customers with sales and deep discounts.
"The retailers are really responding, making sure they are getting their shipments in every day, keeping their stock levels up, and they keep changing up their new fresh sales offers to keep shoppers interested and to keep shoppers coming back to see what's the next new thing," says Kris Walter-Wenell with Southern Hills Mall.
Mall officials say the condensed shopping season is a plus.
"From the shoppers perspective, it's been very beneficial because the retailers have responded with more sales earlier in the season," says Walter-Wenell.
If you still have shopping to do, the mall has extended hours until Christmas.
