Holiday sales numbers up


WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -- It appears holiday shoppers loosened the iron clad grip on their wallets this season.

New sales numbers indicate shoppers spent a little more this holiday season compared to last year.

Retail sales rose by 3.6-percent from the beginning of November through Christmas Eve.

Many stores are hoping the higher numbers will translate into higher profits and save them from the same economic fate as last year.
