Shoppers to hit stores preparing for Christmas

Retail sector is expecting a sharp rise in sales at the end of the week, with customers turning to offline stores from web purchases for a final shopping before Christmas.

It is going to be the busiest day for online orders as well, with one per second on average during three days to Saturday, which totals at over 220,000 orders.
