Bronx shoppers take advantage of holiday sales
Bronx shoppers were out taking advantage of holiday sales Thursday. Many stores on East Fordham Road were open, offering discounts of 50 percent or more on merchandise. Storeowners say the weak economy of 2003 made it one of the worst years in recent history. Bad news for business but good news for shoppers, who say they are finding great deals on just about everything. Not many business owners said they were sorry to see 2003 go. As for the recent resurgence in the economy, storeowners say they are still waiting to see the money show up in their cash registers.
