An online retailing firm says holiday shopping just continues starting earlier and earlier. Sara Skirboll from RetailMeNot.com says the old days of starting holiday shopping after Thanksgiving are mostly long-gone. In fact, she says shopping for the holidays is more often happening as early as the summer.
Skirboll says spending so far is up about four-and-one-third-percent from last year, and this year's tastes in holiday shopping are pretty much following recent tradition. She says 53-percent of people are looking for clothes, 51-percent want electronics and 32-percent are going for toys. And, of course, more and more people are shopping online.
