    Drastic discounted prices

    Many stores around San Diego are lowering prices so much, the deals look more like after-Christmas sales.

    At  Toys R Us, The Barbie Dreamhouse is on sale for $20 off.  The Hannah Montana Guitar is $10 off.  Those were welcome sights to shoppers who waited until Christmas Eve morning to try to wrap up their shopping and still get everything on their list.  Chuck Cummings, the manager of the the Mission Bay Toys R Us, said the store is trying its best to roll with the economy and the constraints on people's budgets this year.
     
    At Best Buy, items are being bundled, encouraging shoppers to buy more. For example, if you bought a Nintendo Wii console, a bundle may contain controllers, a game and a charging station.
