LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Cyber Monday shopping is expected to be down from last year, but at the Fanatics warehouse in Fairdale, they're seeing a 50 percent increase in orders.

The custom sports apparel website says Cyber Monday is still their busiest day of the year, despite the National Retail Federation predicting a slight decrease in Cyber Monday shopping.

"There's a lot more people on the floor, its a lot busier, we're working longer shifts, working ten hours a day, and we'll probably be working for the next twelve days straight," said David Rock with Kelly Services. The employment agency provides seasonal workers at the warehouse.

Fanatics declined to say how many orders they fulfilled this Cyber Monday, only saying that they saw a 50 percent increase in orders from last year.

Year round, Fanatics employs 50 people at its Fairdale warehouse. With seasonal employees, there are currently 1,200 workers on the payroll, and they are still hiring.

For most warehouses and shipping facilities in the Louisville area, seasonal hiring won't slow until the second week in December, or until customer demand dies down. Fanatics will be hiring until the end of this week.
