EDISON - When it comes to fat holiday discounts, better late than never.

At the Woodbridge Center Mall in Woodbridge, shoppers filled stores looking for last-minute bargains.

This holiday shopping season, many stores haven't been offering the same blockbuster deals as they have in years past. Instead, they've dangled offers of free shipping and no-fee layaways to lure shoppers.

But during the final weekend before Christmas, shoppers should expect to see more "70 percent off" and "buy one, get one free" signs as stores try to salvage a season that so far has been disappointing.
