Thousands hit the malls to finish up their shopping

Posted: Updated:

It's the last weekend before Christmas and that means it's time for those last minute shoppers to go to work.

There's the all at once shoppers and the ones just finishing off their list.  There's even a few extra's thrown in.

"I'm done with my Christmas shopping. I just got the urge to shop," said Caron Golden.

Put them all together and you've got one crazy crowd.

It's really busy. It's early in the morning and there are so many people here already," said Addie Derrick.

It had a lot of shoppers asking themselves the same thing they do every year at this time, why did I wait until the last minute?

Elsa Rich is one of the kicking herself for waiting. "I wish I had done it before. I'm regretting waiting to do my Christmas shopping.

But not everyone dreads the last minute shopping. Some people actually enjoy it.

Nancy Brooks likes the big crowds. "I always have to save something for the last minute. Its part of the fun," said Brooks.

Waiting for the last minute is a good thing at some stores because it can save you some cash, but for most of the shoppers they're looking for something much better than a good deal.

"At this point, I'm willing to pay whatever price to get list checked off," said Kristy Heller.
