If you weren't one to battle the mall crowds on Black Friday and didn't feel like heading out in the cold on Small Business Saturday, you can still get some holiday shopping done Monday without even having to leave your couch.
Some folks have been trying to get their shopping done in the big department stores and locals malls, but sometimes it's just too hectic so they wait for Cyber Monday. Most shoppers said they tried to brave the stores but had no such luck.
"I've been trying but I'm probably going to go online shopping Monday. It was pretty intense," said Nathan Bolton, Barbour County Resident.
Monday is Cyber Monday and most people say that's what they look forward to instead of Black Friday.
"I plan on doing a lot of internet shopping all the time, but I especially plan on getting on the internet on Monday and trying to find the deals," said Erin Ray, Doddridge County Resident.
A lot of people surf the internet on a daily basis while other people just go for the variety and convenience.
"There's a far broader range of what you can find online. And if you go to certain websites you can get stuff from China and it can be ridiculously cheaper. It's more convenient. You don't have to get out and fight through the cold. You can just sit at home, get on your laptop, and find what you want," said Bolton.
Other shoppers prefer to stay away form the internet and the crowds all together.
"You know I'm not a big online kind of guy, so that's probably not going to happen. The only exception is if my girlfriend says she wants some kind of special cooking book. Kind of slapped in after the hours and picked up a few deals," said David Henzler, Upshur County Resident.
If you like using the internet be sure to go online Monday to see all the deals that you could find. If not, good luck facing those crowds this holiday season.
