Did you purchase anything online today?
Million of Americans do everyday -- but today especially -- it is known as 'Cyber Monday'.
Experts say around one-point-five billion dollars in sales will happen today -- smashing last years mark by a quarter of a billion dollars.
So do local businesses get any piece of that pie?
Denise Lindbo with Gourmet Chef in downtown Minot says her site has been running for about 10 years now with lots of success.
'Cyber Monday' doesn't necessarily bring increased sales however.
The web does allow her to market her products everywhere though...not just to browsers who come through the store.
(Denise Lindbo - Gourmet Chef) "We pretty good with it. It is not bad. They come at a steady pace so it is easy to keep up with it and the come, orders come from all over. I just filled one for Bismarck today. Last week to Pennsylvania...they are just kind of all over."
Big on the site?
Scandinavian products that they sell along with the offerings from North Dakota companies.
She says they always seem to be a hit...
(Denise Lindbo - Gourmet Chef) "We have a lot of Scandinavian products on our site so people looking for that are finding us...and many we don't know on the coasts and in the south they don't have some of the items we offer. Otherwise it is lots from people from here or have traveled here. They want the Chokecherry jelly or Juneberry jelly. North Dakota products we send a lot out."
Nationwide, online sales this Christmas season are expected to make up about 17 percent of the Christmas shopping market.
