Holiday shoppers

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma’s economy got a nice bump up from Christmas shoppers this year.

Sales tax receipts for December amounted to $172 million, that beats an old monthly record of $165 million set in June.

Economists say while that’s great news, there are still a lot of shoppers and even business owners concerned with the possibility of a recession.
