Shoppers in Greenville were out spending some holiday cash on Wednesday with about one week until Christmas.
As the clock counts down--42 million Americans just started their holiday shopping this week, according to the National Retail Federation. And the organization says it could pay off, as 63 percent of American retailers are expected to offer last minute incentives for shoppers.
The National Retail Federation says the week before Christmas is also the best time for online purchases. Many retail websites are offering free shipping and discounted rush delivery so your purchases arrive before the 25th.
