LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Everybody has a different reason for ending up shopping on Christmas Eve. For some, it’s procrastination or poor planning, for others, it’s become a family tradition.
“Back when my kids were little, we would go to the mall and see Santa for the last time and then we would pick up a few little stocking stuffers,” one shopper said.
Stores like Toys ‘R’ Us are staying open late on Christmas Eve to accommodate all those late shoppers. Some stores have even been offering last minute sales.
Whatever the reason for braving the last-minute crowds, most shoppers we talked to were looking forward to getting their purchases home, wrapping them up, and enjoying the holidays.
