NEW YORK — The threat of a transit strike gave a minor kick to New York stores over the weekend — but the crucial remaining 10 shopping days could be ruined if a walkout takes place.
Stores and sidewalks were jammed with people loading up on Christmas gifts and other essentials, like walking shoes and outerwear. Despite the inclement weather, retailers said Saturday generally was busier than the sunnier Sunday. There were different views, though, as to whether shoppers were out in force simply to beat the Christmas deadline or because of the potential strike.
