AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- All holiday shoppers know, especially the last-minute mall go-ers, that retail stores during the holidays can be stressful. Between the crowds and lines, piles of rifled-through inventory, and pushy fellow shoppers – some may classify it as their own "Nightmare Before Christmas." While this crowded chaos can be difficult to navigate, it is nothing compared to the stresses of retail employees this time of year.
Shopping and trends expert for RetailMeNot, Sara Skirboll, says, "Between searching the stockroom for the last bit of merchandise, or trying to make sure shoppers are getting the best deals possible - the patience displayed by retail employees is unmatched." RetailMeNot was able to pick the brains of thirteen different retail workers to get their thoughts, tips and woes of holiday shopping. Skirboll adds "When checking everything off your holiday wish list, it is important for shoppers to remember that a little kindness can go a long way. In order to make it a great time of savings for everyone, be respectful of both the retail stores and sales associates."
