Thousands fill Concord Mills Mall for last minute holiday shopping

Thousands fill Concord Mills Mall for last minute holiday shopping

However, they said they're not as stressed as they thought they'd be.

The rush is on for last minute Christmas gifts.

Marketing Coordinator Claire Massey said they expect more sales this year than last, and this part of the year is what local stores rely on.

"We've been talking about getting Santa pictures, but we finally did two days before Christmas", said Stelma.

According to The National Retail Federation, about 7,000 people took a survey.

Start early, go with the follow of traffic and make sure you have patience because you might have to wait.

Weather may have been bad today, but that didn't stop shoppers from going out to look for those last minute Christmas gifts.

Plenty of self-proclaimed procrastinators hit the malls as well ahead of the weekend.

"I thought I had everything done. There's just more people on island I guess".

"Especially with New Year's resolutions coming up, a lot of people are buying protein powder, fat-burners and pre-workout", he said.

She said the gift hunting process can be a bit overwhelming.

As temperatures drop, do not forget to take it easy out there and allow yourself plenty of extra time, especially with that melted snow turning to ice.

"I like Christmas because we celebrate with our family", Barton said.

Cox said the business helps more than just the store employees.

Cars began filling the parking lot early at the Kohl's off State Road 436.

"My wife and I already did most of our Christmas shopping for the family together, but I couldn't get hers until later", he said.

To avoid the long line, other shoppers purchased their items online and picked it up at the store.
