NEW YORK (AP) — Let the shopping marathon continue: Americans are hitting the malls to spend gift cards on whatever items Santa may have missed and pick up items on clearance.

Retailers are rolling out deals to attract shoppers back to stores. But with hot toys selling out before Christmas and popular sizes and styles of clothing hard to find, bargains on the most desirable merchandise may be scarce.

Strong sales in the coming week would build on the highest-spending holiday season since 2007, which was a record year.

A snowstorm headed up the East Coast is likely to crimp some plans. Washington, D.C., is expected to get 5 to 8 inches of snow. New York and New England could get even more Sunday and Monday.
