Last-minute shoppers flock to Lenox Square mall

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Hundreds of people flocked to the mall to secure last-minute gifts on Monday.

Shopper Nicole Reed is the perfect example of a last-minute shopper. 

Reed hasn't purchased a single thing and she is hunting to find last-minute deals for her children.

"My oldest one wants clothes and beats by Dre," Nicole Reed said. "My little one wants toys Hello Kitty and anything Dora."

Like most last-minute shoppers, Reed has her reasons for why she waited to hit the mall.

"Because that's when you get the best deals," Reed said.

This mother is not alone in her last-minute thinking. 

Monday CBS Atlanta News found hundreds of people scrambling to for last-minute items. 

"I hate it," complained Saundrina Jordan. "Because at first my mom said she didn't want anything so I decided at the last minute to get her something anyway."

For shoppers like Jordan, Christmas purchases will serve a dual purpose.

"My mother's birthday is Dec. 31, so it's going to be a combination," Jordan said.

Area malls close at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Walmarts in certain location will remain open until midnight.
