      Last holiday shopping weekend for retailers

      Some stores are hoping that extended hours and discounts will encourage reluctant shoppers to spend more this holiday season.Among the retailers stretching their business days are Macy's and Kmart. They are opening some of their stores for more than 100 hours.According to ShopperTrak, sales at U.S. stores rose 2 percent to $176.7 billion from Nov. 1 through last Sunday.
