The last Saturday before Christmas promises to bring lots of deals. Stores like JCPenney at Great Northern Mall are kicking off door buster sales by opening at 6:00 a.m.
Deep discounts are expected to be unveiled as soon as the doors open. The hot-ticket items are boots and jewelry. “If they spend $100, they get $20 back, so that’s really great, on top of the 50-60% we have on jewelry,” said JCPenney’s store manager, Blaine Wilson.
Deal or no deal, retailers are banking on last-minute shoppers to boost their bottom line. “(Saturday) is the best of the best. It’s going to be cold and crisp, it’s going to be a great day for us and the customers,” said Wilson.
Great Northern Mall will open at 8:00 a.m. and will close at 11:00 p.m. JCPenney will be open from 6:00 a.m. until midnight.
