ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many economists say American consumers plan to throttle back their Holiday spending by the most in 28 years, but some South Georgia stores say they are not seeing it.

Wednesday shoppers were busy buying at the Place on the Pointe Gift Shop.

Owner Honey Bolton said they have not seen a slowdown, their business has really picked up in recent days with the Holidays approach.

Bolton said "I think it's going to be better than what the economists say it is going to be. I think people are going to get into the season, and really providing people with good value for their budget is going to be the ticket this year. And that's what we are here to provide."

Many stores are not letting Thanksgiving stop them from business. Most large chain stores will be open all day on Thanksgiving, like Wal Mart, K Mart, CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid.
