Holiday shoppers scoop up deals at NJ malls
The clock is winding down with days to go until the holidays, and crowds are flocking to New Jersey malls to take advantage of sales.
Nationwide retail numbers are up this holiday season, partially due to steep sale prices.
Shoppers say the packed parking lots and malls are all worth it because of the money they are saving.
At Menlo Park Mall, shoppers can find deals of up to 70 percent off.
The National Retail Federation says in November retail sales were up five percent, and online sales rose 15 percent over last year.
The NRF says job and wage gains have helped increase the percentages of sales this season.
Shoppers tell News 12 that they feel comfortable with the money they're spending because the price tags could've been much higher.
