(Washington, DC) -- Holiday shoppers will have plenty of company over the long Thanksgiving weekend. The National Retail Federation says 140 million people will likely shop sometime between now and the start of next week. That's a one-percent drop from the number of people who hit the stores during the same time last year. Around 70 percent of those who plan to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend say they're going to shop today, Black Friday.
