(KSL News) -- We won't have any hard figures until later in the week, but retailers around the country say their stores were busy this weekend, but could have been better.

Some businesses say a lot of shoppers came in for the 5 am early-bird specials, but they didn't hang around long after that. Still, the big chains did well.

As you probably know, the day after Thanksgiving is known as "Black Friday", with stores hoping to get their profits into "positive" territory. Monday is known as "Cyber Monday". Yep, people are back at work, but still want or need to shop and they're doing it on-line!

Rick Gallagher, Vice President, National Retail Federation: "Now here's the interesting part of that. We've got polling data that says about 37 percent of people will be shopping from work on Monday. So don't let your boss see you over your shoulder."

Most on-line retailers say their sales spiked last year the Monday after Thanksgiving.
