Holiday weekend sales on par with 2012

Albany, N.Y. - According to the Retail Council of New York State, New York's retailers tallied a holiday shopping weekend on par with 2012 levels, with sales generally even with a comparable period from one year ago.

Retail Council President James R. Sherin. says "We're looking at a transition year with more merchants than ever spreading out  the post-Thanksgiving promotions, adding to the notion that "Black Friday" is no longer the busiest shopping day of the year."

Hot sellers for the heavily-promotional weekend included XBox and PlayStation upgrades, video games, LeapPad, Big Hug Elmo, "Despicable Me" figures, winter sports equipment, cold weather clothing, and Christmas decorations.
