Despite being shut down for Christmas day, our leading retailers generally posted slightly higher check-in numbers this week as the stragglers stocked up on last-minute gifts and bargain hunters hit the sales one last time on the day after Christmas. Judging by the daily totals, the former outnumbered the latter. For each of the top 10 merchants, Thursday was the peak check-in day, with a slight fall-off on Friday and then an obvious bounce on Sunday to not-quite-peak levels.
