(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota retailers are expecting a good holiday season.

The rosy outlook comes after shoppers flocked to Black Friday and Small Business Saturday sales across the state over the weekend.

The National Retail Federation predicts holiday shopping sales will increase between six and eight-percent over last year.

That's higher than the average increase of just under five-percent over the past ten years.
