On this week's program, we're taking you inside the holiday shopping season.
Spending is expected to increase by five percent this year nation-wide.
According to the National Retail Federation, the average shopper plans to spend $791.10 on holiday gifts this season. That's up about $50 from last year.
We'll talk to a local economist about what to expect from retailers and shoppers this year.
We're also joined by representatives from the Empire Mall and Downtown Sioux Falls.
Plus we'll also look at how online sales could impact local retailers.
