Last Minute Christmas Shoppers

Posted:

Maybe you're one of those shoppers who decided to put off your holiday shopping until the eve of Christmas.

Kirkwood Mall is bustling with those who still need to check things off their shopping list.

Those we talk to do not seem too rushed and even enjoy being out and about.

They even say the sales are worth the wait.

"We just kind of waited last minute to do Christmas shopping and now we're going to get it all done today."

"Just picking up a couple extra things for the grandkids."

"We actually flew in from out of town so we waited until we got here to buy presents."

"We pick names and then we have an hour to shop and get the gift for that person and then actually be at Grizzly's is our meeting spot and have something to eat there and whoever loses has to pay."

In order for you to even be able to shop today, we have to thank those hard at work.

Ladies at the gift wrapping station say Christmas Eve is their busiest day.

It's not just last minute shopping, it's also last minute present wrapping.

"I'm actually here to do some last minute Christmas wrapping and this gal here did a wonderful job on this present here for me."

"I like to see all the men come in with all their gifts, you know, their last minute gifts and everything and see what type of things we wrap," says Cindy Sandvick, Gift Wrapper, Optimist Club.

All proceeds at the gift wrapping station in the mall will go to the Optimist Club.

It's one of their biggest yearly fundraisers.
