Millions of Americans are turning to keystrokes and clicks on Cyber Monday.
Isaac Wallner is a seasoned online shopper.
“It’s faster and more convenient,” Wallner said. “You can just hop online, save gas, shop. You’re done. You don’t have to worry about driving there and things not being there.”
When he’s not with his family, he’s with his work family, at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Kenosha.
“It’s a busy place. It’s like a zoo," Wallner said. "There are boxes everywhere. It’s orchestrated, but it’s busy. You walk in there, and it’s like, wow."
The National Retail Federation says 121 million shoppers plan to shop online Monday.

Experts say over 29 million people will use their mobile device to shop, while others prefer their home computers to shop online.
Brenda Brady of Alpaca Art is looking forward to logging on.
“We’re not open [Monday], so I’ll probably log on from home and do some purchasing,” Brady said.
As you shop from home or work, be mindful that others may be shopping for you. Watch out for websites that ask you to download software or give out your bank information or passwords.
