Shoppers happily take advantage of Columbus Day sales

Bargain hunters hit the stores for Columbus Day, with many popular retailers offering big discounts for shoppers in honor of the holiday.

Stores like Kohl's, Payless and Casual Male XL were all offering discounts from 30 to 50 percent off this Columbus Day, with some bringing in coupons to get extra discounts on top of the sales. Some shoppers left stores with as much as $80 in savings, and advise others to look closely and buy wisely.

Store managers say the sales bring lots of people in, and give their stores a much needed boost before the big shopping season this winter begins.
