People hitting stores to finish last minute Christmas shopping

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Many people did some last minute Christmas shopping this weekend at places like Oglethorpe Mall, which was packed with shoppers, all searching for the perfect gift.

Christmas is less than a week away, so folks are hoping to finish up their shopping and enjoy the holidays with family and friends.

Some stores had long lines, but many said it was worth the wait.

Taylor Culjan says shopping for gifts is a hard day of work, "dragging a five year old with me is not fun. She's at her wits end. She's ready to go home. So that's what we're going to do."

Other shoppers like Terri Collins say they are almost done with their holiday shopping duties, "it's going pretty good. Getting a little late start. So i'm trying to get it finished up."  

Also enjoying the crowds this weekend are the retailers!

This is the last big push before christmas, so many stores were dropping prices and adding incentives for shoppers.

Places like Aeropostale is also offering coupons and online deals to keep shoppers coming back in the new year. Aerpostale even had to call in extra employees to help with the crowds and keep things moving smoothly.

Danielle Nevins, the store's manager says, "it's been really busy. We're up by like ten percent from last year. It's hard to even move around in the store and keep things straight."
