Last-minute holiday shoppers take to the stores

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- Shoppers of all ages packed the stores to get their remaining gifts of their shopping lists.

One thing that might be different from years past... it's not just the men out there.

Women are also guilty of some holiday procrastination.

Many of the folks we spoke with today say they are trying to avoid the mall.

Shopper Eric Applen says,"Yeah, that's why I kind of avoided the malls. I just went to the simple store here and got two things, and that's it."

Shopper Chris Lowther says, "We're pretty much done now. Got a couple more spots, but then that's it. We're going to call it quits."

Many of these stores won't open again until Friday. But, then, you have one of the biggest return days of the year as people try to exchange or upgrade their Christmas gifts.
