Americans to Go in Store for Holiday Shopping

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_dde998691b.jpgiStock/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- Americans are not afraid to go out and shop during the holidays in spite of having concerns about all the mayhem associated with the season. That's the latest finding of an Harris Interactive poll, which says that 88 percent of people will actually walk into so-called brick and mortar stores to do some of their buying this year.

Overall, 93 percent of people who'll shop the "old-fashioned" way admit to having some anxieties, with 44 percent complaining about crowds, 29 percent bummed out about long lines and 15 percent worried that the items they want will be out of stock.

Meanwhile, at least three in four people will buy goods online via a computer while about 16 percent say they'll use a phone or some other mobile device to make holiday purchases.
