Many people think of Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, as the biggest shopping day of the year, but in reality, that honor traditionally goes to the Saturday before Christmas. Since Christmas is on a Sunday this year, this coming Saturday, December 17, is expected to be the busy day.
"Saturday and Sunday of this weekend are going to be huge. Stores are going to be packed. People are going to be buying a lot of things," said Dr. Audrey Guskey, a marketing professor at Duquesne University.
