Retailers in Tallahassee say they are gearing up for the holiday crowds.
Many say they've already increased inventory and will increase store hours in order to accommodate more shoppers.
Store employees also say they expect to be just as busy this holiday season as in past years.
"Sales are beginning to pick up with shoppers coming in looking for different type clothes for their children and family, so definitely business has picked up," says Frank Close, Student Body store salesperson.
Traditionally, the day after Thanksgiving is considered the busiest shopping day of the year and it's also known for holiday sales.
