Don’t like crowds?  Bill Martin, founder of ShopperTrak, says the best days to go shopping are next Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  The crowds aren’t as thick, and:

(Martin) “The second week is just, the following week is the traditional trough in the retail cycle.  So, there’s another opportunity to go at that time.  They’ve replenished the stores.”

And you’ll have an opportunity to find better:

(Martin) “Selection, service and fewer people.”

Martin says the best day to shop is Tuesday, November 27th.  One of the worst: December 22nd, which has been dubbed “Super Saturday” – a lot of last-minute shoppers.
