NEW YORK (AP) -- Some stores are ending the holiday shopping season the same way they began it - with round-the-clock, marathon shopping hours.

Kohl's for the first time is opening for essentially five days, from 6 a.m. on Friday through 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Macy's and Kmart are opening some of their stores for more than 100 hours in a row from Friday through Christmas Eve. And Toys R Us is staying open for 87 hours straight starting on Saturday, which is typically the second biggest shopping day of the year.

The expanded hours come as stores try to recoup lost sales in a season that's been hobbled by a number of factors, from a weak economy to a shorter period between the official start of the buying season until the end.
