CHICAGO — Saturday is expected to be the biggest shopping day of the year.

Retail experts call it "Super Saturday," and it's expected to beat out Black Friday.

The National Retail Federation predicts 147.8 million Americans will be out looking for last-minute holiday gifts, up from 134.3 million last year.  The surge of procrastinators is why Saturday is also known as "Panic Saturday."

The organization forecasts that holiday sales will increase by about 4% this year, over last with consumers spending as much as $730.7 billion.

Some stories, such Macy's, opened its doors early, while others like Target and Best Buy are offering extended hours. Kohl's is open 24 hours from now until Christmas Eve.
