Texomans Prepare for Cyber Monday

Holiday Shopping for bargain hunters continues tomorrow for Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday is the day for those who would rather shop from the comfort of your own couch than stand in long lines for deals and discounts.

The internet is the only store that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Texoma resident, Leslie Mahan told Newschannel 6 that she plans to participate in Cyber Monday 2014.

“I'm trying to find a blue helicopter for my 6 year old daughter.  “I'm also looking for a drone and then I'm also looking for a deal on a TV for a family member," said Mahan.

According to a CBS news report, there is prediction of a 15-percent gain in web sales for the Cyber Monday shopping frenzy.

In 2013, Cyber Monday sales totaled about $2.3 billion.

For Mahan and Texoma residents just like her, shopping online is the better option.

“They don't always have everything that you need in the stores and there's the ability to price compare across several websites like Best Buy, Amazon, Target and all those," said Mahan.

Also, there aren't any crowds of people when you are shopping from the comfort of your own home.

“Less crowds," said Mahan.

“It's much easier for sure.  I like to avoid the crowds more than going into the teeth of the dragon," said Texoma shopper, Ron Fiorentino.

Cyber Monday is the biggest online shopping holiday of the year.

If you do plan to shop online on Monday, make sure you're doing so from a secure site.
