While the holidays are traditionally when retail stores hire more workers, summer also sees an increase in employee numbers. This is to ensure they have enough staff to meet the needs of tourists who are in town and looking for some retail therapy. Many tourists actually plan to visit popular malls, such as North Star Mall in San Antonio during their trip.
