Michigan retailers are feeling pretty optimistic on holiday shopping numbers.
Final numbers won't be in for a few weeks, but retailers predicted a six-percent increase over last year going into the holiday shopping season.
Sales nationally are up about four-percent, according to research firm 'Shopper-Track.'
That's thanks to Black Friday shoppers and people who waited until the last minute.
