Hate crowded stores? Here's some shopping tips for you

The National Retail Federation has brought out a list of its Top 10 Holiday Shopping Tips. There are some really cool tips like going to a store after 6pm the evening before a sale is to begin. Most retailers program the registers the night before a sale, so you will be able to shop in relative peace and still get the discount. Another good tip on avoiding crowds is to take advantage of extended shopping hours by shopping early in the morning and late in the evening.
“Holiday to-do lists can get a little overwhelming this time of year,” said Dan Butler, NRF’s Vice President of Retail Operations and Merchandising. “From finding out ahead of time when an item goes on sale to knowing the best times to avoid crowds, smart shoppers can follow little tricks of the trade to reduce unnecessary frustration."
