Holiday Shopping

The unofficial start of the holiday shopping season begins tomorrow, and Colorado retailers are getting ready for the post-Thanksgiving rush.

There are early signs of optimism -- such as an increase in temporary hiring. For the first time in three years, retail stores have returned to normal hiring levels.

Still many shoppers remain cautious amid worries about the economy and their own jobs.

Sales this weekend will provide good benchmarks for how the season will look, but the busiest shopping days typically fall on Saturdays closer to Christmas.
