OKLAHOMA CITY -- Retailers are also being hit hard, and that has one retailer looking for opportunities to keep shoppers coming back.

Coleman, the outdoor retailer, is holding a warehouse super sale at Crossroads Mall this weekend.

Cash strapped shoppers are stocking up on coolers, tents and outdoor odds and ends. Mall officials hope the big sale will drive customers to other stores in the mall.

"We think there will be some cross shopping between the coleman event and the mall...but these events are a lot of fun our shoppers enjoy them and we want to continue to do these sort of things to fill this space," Crossroads Mall Manager Jim Swenson said.

The sale continues tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
