Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - There is less than 80-shopping days 'til Christmas, but some area businesses don't want you to wait until the last minute. The businesses are enticing you to spend early, and often.

It's the season of spooks, but make no bones about it, Christmas is just around the corner… literally. There are holiday decorations and yes, even holiday deals.

“Ten dollars for the girls, ten dollars for the boys.”

More than 100 toys at Wal-Mart already wear their holiday savings price tags, so in this tough economy, you can start budgeting and buying now. Steve says these two aisles will expand into a whole 10 dollar toy section, but, he says that's no reason to wait.

Need another excuse to spend during hard economic times? The F-M Chamber of Commerce Vice President says use your dollars locally and eventually it'll help you.

“Spend money here, help grow economy; stop spending and it doesn't grow.”

He says even buying at corporations like Wal-Mart can help, because the store hires local employees who spend their money in our area. So whatever holiday you're in the mood for, the goods are here and this year some of the prices you want could be too.
