Cyber Monday

Plenty of local shoppers were taking advantage of Cyber Monday deals on the biggest online shopping day of the year.

A recent Elon University poll found nearly one in three North Carolinians planned to shop online Monday, but nearly the same percentage were expecting to spend less this year than usual--mainly because of the economy.

"This year is a little bit tighter than last year," said Cathy Hudson, a retiree who was surfing some online websites looking to create gift baskets for friends and family Christmas gifts.

Many people said they prefer to shop online rather than in stores for many reasons. One shopper who spoke with News 13 is a Clemson graduate student from China.

"I have family members in China," said Jingru Suy. "So they always ask me to help them get something online if there's a deal, since it's usually cheaper here than back in China. Basically I'll go online and check if there's any percent off, and if that works for them, I'll go and get it."
