NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just days away, TheStreet's Laurie Kulikowski spoke to Jeff Goldstein, president of PriceGrabber, about the role of mobile in this season's holiday sales.
Kulikowski reported that nearly 24% of shoppers plan to make purchases via a mobile device this year, a 44% increase from last year.
Retailers are much more prepared this year, Goldstein said. Many updated their Web sites to be mobile-compatible and have also begun to push mobile applications. Shoppers can get coupons and find sales information on the apps, too.
