MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Before Rachel Zenhausern did some light shopping on Mamaroneck Avenue, she searched for Cyber Monday savings online.
Zenhausern, a Mamaroneck resident, bought her husband a gift on Amazon.com. She usually does a lot of her holiday shopping online, but limited it this year in favor of supporting local businesses.
"It used to be big for me, but I'm trying to stay off the internet and support the little guys," she said.
In addition to buying gifts for her family Monday, Zenhausern bought an animal for a needy family through the Heifer Project , an international non-profit that helps families lift themselves up out of poverty through gifts of livestock, seeds and trees and training them how to cultivate those resources.
Denise Guzman has no reservations about taking advantage of Cyber Monday deals online, and plans to visit the Wal-Mart and Target websites in search of the X-Box 360 for her son.
"Hopefully I'll get some good deals," Guzman said.
