Last-minute shoppers expected to break records on 'Super Saturday'

Last-minute shoppers expected to break records on 'Super Saturday'

Let's not forget about "Super Saturday".

Of people surveyed, 44.8 percent said they are still weighing choices between gifts. Meanwhile, one in five consumers admits they are simply procrastinating.

Businesses in Clinton and around the country are set for a busy weekend ahead as last-minute shoppers head to local shops and stores to find their friends and loved ones the flawless gift with just days to spare.

"You know it's going to be busy", he said.

Some parents were out checking off the last items on their children's lists ahead of Christmas on Monday.

"Even though many consumers got a head start with holiday shopping early in the season, millions more are leaving their gift buying to the last minute and beyond", Matthew Shaw, CEO of the retail group, said in a statement. You could consider taking friends and family out to dinner or the movies.

The rest of the Southern Hills Mall was bustling but still navigable early Saturday afternoon.

"Birthdays and holidays have to always be special", said May Jackson, who was also shopping.

This Saturday, Dec. 23, is forecast to be the busiest or second-busiest shopping day of the year, MacDuff added.

"It's really nice to be here on this handsome day".

Ashland Town Center will continue to offer extended shopping hours through Christmas Eve, according to the center's marketing director, Jaime Bloss. He's shopping for his 7-year-old and 8-year-old daughters.

The ARA said 53 percent of consumers plan do some sort of last-minute Christmas shopping over the weekend.

If you still have items on your list - or maybe you work irregular hours - don't worry, there are still several options.

Inglewood resident Anthony Antonio said he tried to avoid shopping by ordering gifts online, but still found himself in the middle of the holiday chaos. "There is a push to put shoppers in stores for Christmas".

There are quite a few retailers open on Christmas Eve for any last-minute shopping needs.

CVS will stay open all day and night on Christmas Eve, sticking with their normal 24/7 schedule.

Kohl's: Closes 6 p.m. That's 63 hours straight that Toys "R" Us will be open for business.

Bed, Bath & Beyond: Open 8 a.m. -6 p.m.

You can shop at Lowe's until 6 p.m. December 24.
