Major retailer to be open around the clock before Christmas

Posted:

Have you started your holiday shopping?  There are only 19 more shopping days left before Christmas.

And Just as new concerns are coming about spending this holiday season a major retailer has announced changes to their holiday shopping schedule.  Kohl's announced Thursday they will be open around the clock for the last few days leading up to Christmas. Starting December 20th they'll be open 24 hours a day until Christmas Eve.

This comes just days after the National Retail Federation said total spending for the four day Thanksgiving-Black Friday weekend fell almost 3% from last year.  It's the first time spending levels have fallen since the group started tracking numbers in 2006.

Before these numbers retailers were already concerned about a shorter shopping season this year.  Shoppers even admit they feel crunched for time.  "Yeah, I do," said Kohl's shopper Rachel Jasso.

Now on the heels of the slow start to the holiday shopping season comes Kohl's announcement.  Shoppers FOX28 spoke to are all for it the retailer being open 24/7.  "Round the clock I think would work out really nice," said Jasso.  Kohl's Shopper Vivian Howton said, "that's very good because a lot of people have different schedules...that will work out wonderful for all the shoppers. "

Jasso and Howton just started their Christmas shopping so they say there's a good chance they'll take advantage of Kohl's around the clock hours.  "I have been in here as late as 10:30-11 o'clock at night," said Howton.   Jasso said, "sometimes last minute I try to go to stores and they're not open so I'm constantly trying to find a store that's open."
