STORES PUSH DEALS TO LURE SHOP­PERS

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Stores are push­ing deals and incentives like free ship­ping for the fi­nal week of the hol­i­day shop­ping sea­son, as new num­bers show peo­ple are spend­ing at a bit of a slower pace than last year.

Re­tail­ers pared down their in­ven­to­ries and of­fered more ex­clu­sive mer­chan­dise this sea­son in a bid to avoid hav­ing to of­fer big dis­counts that shop­pers have come to ex­pect. But cus­tomers seem will­ing to wait, and so stores are once again count­ing on last-minute buy­ers for the fi­nal stretch, par­tic­u­larly Satur­day, which could be the busi­est day of the year.
