The general manger of Tanger Outlets in Branson, says it was a busy weekend for retailers.

Thousands of shoppers filled stores during the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday.

But Jamie Whiteis says the rain actually helped bring more people indoors.

And there were still shoppers in town today.

“I’ve talked to a few customers today,” Whiteis said. “They thought today would be a great day because it’s after the weekend and they know other people are probably at home doing that Cyber Monday stuff. So they could just take advantage of coming here today and getting some great deals.”

He also says the nice weather on Saturday helped outdoor venues like race tracks and Silver Dollar City.
