Some say, it's the thought that counts, even if the thought is last-minute.
The mall has been busier than Black Friday on several days leading up to Christmas.
Instead of a stressed-out atmosphere, there seems to be a lot of Christmas Eve cheer.
Whether they're looking for last-minute deals or stocking stuffers, the mall is stuffed with last-minute shoppers once again.
"It's busier than I thought it was going to be, way busier than I thought it was going to be." says Nate Hlibichuk/Mandan.
Shoppers in a hurry, flock to the mall with only hours to spare.
"A lot of people we get to wrap about this time are the men, I think they tend to wait until the last minute --they're in a big hurry, happy to have someone do it for them." says Kathy Waldera/Optimist Club/Last-Minute Wrapper.
"I did most of my shopping online, but yeah it's last minute for the wife." says Hlibichuk.
Even in a pressure-cooker situation, many of these last-last minute shoppers are keeping their cool, even spreading some cheer.
"If you can make someone else smile, why not! It's the present that keeps on giving." says Bailey and Edward Elkins.
Mall personnel says the past two Saturdays had more foot traffic than on Black Friday.
Something that's especially true, with Christmas falling so close to the weekend.
