It’s holiday Monday after Christmas and shoppers head to the malls early in the morning looking for deals. At Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, the parking structures are already full by 9am.. And inside the mall, there are more people than during the weekends.
Many shoppers are well prepared to shop having checked store hours and where certain items can be found in the mall.
The packed crowds inside the mall does not seem to bother shoppers, but some thought most people should have done their shopping on Black Friday after Thanksgiving.
Some merchants say their sales are up compared to last year, “Our business actually picked up a lot since last year. All of our numbers basically have doubled. We have been selling a lot of stuff,” says Minos Anchez, one of the store representatives at the mall.
