Some economists predict this could be the worst holiday shopping season since 1991. So to try to cash in early, Wal-Mart announced Wednesday it's cutting prices on popular toys, and will open its Christmas shops next week.

Macy's has also opened its specialty Christmas shops, and Target has holiday decorations on its shelves.
