This past weekend, the stores in Cheyenne were not that busy...which pretty much mimics the rest of the nation. I was in several key box stores and you could roll a bowling ball and not hit a single shopper (not that I would though....).

U.S. consumers shopped less on the final weekend before Christmas than ever before, despite deeper discounts in the latest sign of how difficult a season this is turning out to be for retailers.

Shoppers also showed signs they will do more of their spending after December 25 than they did in the same period last year, in hopes of snagging even more deals. So should be move Christmas to December 26?
