Are you a last minute shopper? - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Are you a last minute shopper?

Posted: Updated:

If you've packed all the presents and realized you're still a few stocking stuffers shy, not to worry, some stores are open a few more hours on Monday. 

With less than 24 hours left until Christmas left, it's crunch time. 

"Last minute stocking stuffers. I forget about it throughout the main part of shopping," said shopper, Jamie Carlson.

Whether you're a pro at last minutes shopping, or a novice, you'll love the deals.

"I usually done by the first of December," shopper Ann Hale.

"Half the store is 5 to 50 percent off. We have lots of clearance items. Our Niemen Marcus line is on sale 50 percent off," said Christin Lang with Target.

You can find toys up to 30 percent off or score clothes up to 70 percent off. 

Shoppers like Jami Carlson, say it's not just here.

"I did find some sales at several stores today," Carlson said.

One thing you won't find, trailing lines. Target manager Christin Lang says they've hired extra employees to man the checkout booths. This year to keep lines short, they're trying something new: mobile registers.

"We put them in electronics, we put them up front. That way if you just have a couple of items and you don't feel like waiting in line after someone that's got a cart full, we can just check them out real quick," Lang said.

Mary Edwards is not a last minute shopper, but after Monday, she may be.

"What I like is there's hardly anyone here. Everyone should shop on Christmas Eve. I think I'm a convert seriously, because I went two weeks ago into Kohls, it was nuts. This is great," Edwards said.

Target will be open until 9:00 p.m. and Eastland Mall closes at 6:00 p.m. Monday night.

For Owensboro shoppers, Townesquare Mall is also open until 6:00 p.m. as well.
