Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - West Acres in Fargo is on track for its best holiday shopping season yet.

And with the mall packed with after Christmas shoppers, more money keeps rolling in.

With the holiday season of opening gifts over, don't be fooled. Holiday sales are still going on helping bring in money for retailers at West Acres

Mall sales are currently ahead of pace after record sales last year. The good news comes as retailers nationwide have seen disappointing numbers in holiday spending.

Early reports estimate national holiday spending only grew by .7%, down from the three or four percent forecast.

But West Acres' location, as well as the weather and surrounding economy, have helped bring an estimated more shoppers than ever.

Brad Schlossman, West Acres Development CEO: “It's been a great holiday season. Last year we set an all-time record and this year we're ahead of last year's pace. So, we're looking for good final numbers with one week to go here in the year.”

Schlossman says they should see exact numbers by the end of next month.
