Last minute shoppers scramble before closing time

Posted: Updated:

Time is running out on holiday shoppers. Many stores have already closed or will close soon for the night.

There's less than six hours until Christmas, and people are scrambling at the north side Target to get their gifts before times up at 9:00 Tuesday night.

The National Retail Federation predicts there will be 3.9 percent increase in sales from the same time last year. 

A lot of shoppers 14 News spoke to say as crowded as some of the stores are, things are going pretty smoothly.

"It's crazy, but they're getting you through the line really quickly. They're doing really well and people seem to be pretty happy," Cindy Boughton said.

If you're one of those last minute shoppers, be sure to check times stores are closing before you head out. Target on First Avenue will be closed on Wednesday, along with many others stores.
