We reached out to a couple shops in the Coastal Bend on what they are planning to do to lure shoppers.

Apparently, they say they are not worried about the current economic downturn.

Cotten's Collectibles, located in the Corpus Christi Trade Center, opened during the pandemic.

Katie Cotten, co-owner of the store, said they have a strong customer base and are stocked up on goods.

"I'm not too too worried about it though. I feel very confident in our customer base and we have a really good name in the community," said Cotten. 

Cotten says you can find gifts ranging from collectible figurines to dice and decorative items when open during the weekend.
