Holiday shopping a big draw for Downtown Savannah businesses


Do you still have gifts to buy for the holidays? There's only a few days left before Christmas.

We headed down to Broughton Street to see how the season is going for shops downtown and how some of the new stores are doing. While Levy Jewelers isn't new to the area, they have moved a block and say businesses has really picked up.

"We support the community, and the community supports us," said Lowell Kronowitz, President of Levy Jewelers.

"My expectation is to be here for another 75 years we've put our name in the terrazzo like the tradition on Broughton Street is, we are going to be here for a long time."

"Yeah it's picking up," said John Croley of Planet Fun. "There's always a lot of gag gifts- stocking stuffers and things like that. That seems to be when we really pick up - towards the end when people began to panic and get more stuff for Christmas.

For the most part - retailers say they are happy with this year's holiday shopping turnout.
