This holiday shopping season is predicted to be very merry for online retailers.

Of course the Black Friday lines will be filled with gleeful shoppers devoted to a deal, but those of us who opt out of standing in line for a much cozier version of shopping at the click of a mouse will still be able to get in on the holiday deals.

NPR senior business editor Marilyn Geewax (@geewaxnpr) joins Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd to discuss the highly anticipated shopping season, and predictions that it will break records.

This segment aired on November 24, 2016.
