Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- The countdown is on. With Christmas just days away, shoppers are rushing to find those-last minute gifts.
To get people in and out faster, J.C.Penney's is using new technology. Employees use ipods and ipads to help customers check out anywhere in the store. They say it's a great way to help more people at one time, especially since this Saturday and Sunday is one of their busiest weekends of the year.
Nadine Carriere, sales specialist, says, "It is the final weekend not the weekend and then there are some days so it is a lot busier I think then the Black Friday and people rushing in and things are priced so well right now that they're getting a better deal so they tend to buy a lot more too."
The store currently has 8 ipods and plans on adding more in the future to make shopping more convenient.
