  • Shoppers hit the stores before Christmas

'Anyone who has left it until now isn't going to have much choice - you will effectively be stuck with what's left on the shelves in those stores, ' she said. Meanwhile, one in five consumers admits they are simply procrastinating.

An employee at the mall said it has been packed this week and didnt have time to get her own shopping done until now.

With Christmas falling on a Monday and bad weather forecast, Kathy Hundley, who is the store manager Rocky Hill Kohl's, said she noticed an uptick in shoppers this morning.

Shoppers say they've been seeing a lot of reckless driving this holiday season and they're encouraging residents to take some very important things into consideration.

Despite the early start to holiday shopping, millions of consumers are leaving gift-buying to the last minute.

If you still haven't gotten presents for your friends and family yet, don't fret you're not alone.

Malls owned by Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, including Cherry Hill, Plymouth Meeting, Willow Grove, and Exton Square - and Simon Property Group - including King of Prussia, Montgomery Mall, and Oxford Valley Mall - will open earlier and close later on Friday and Saturday.

"Gift cards can be creatively wrapped to make the gift a more personal one", she said.

"It's really nice to be here on this lovely day".


Sears: Open 8 a.m. -6 p.m.

Ashland Town Center will continue to offer extended shopping hours through Christmas Eve, according to the center's marketing director, Jaime Bloss.

Old Navy: 7 a.m. -7 p.m. The mall will be open from 10 a.m. -6 p.m. on Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas Day.

Many retailers have hours designed for the last-minute gift-giver.

While he got gifts for his father, mother, and younger brother Thursday at Cherry Hill Mall, he still has his girlfriend's gift - a two-day getaway - that he plans to purchase online at by Christmas Eve.

Kmart is staying open extra late on December 24 until 10 p.m. Other shoppers, like Los Angeles resident Lashonna Smith, enjoyed getting out and hitting the stores.

Sears: On Dec. 24 you can shop at Sears from 8 a.m.to 6 p.m.

Pharmacies are a great place to stock up on not only medicine and personal care items, but also on some last-minute gifts and goodies for the stockings.

"A number of retailers will also be bringing their Boxing Day sales forward this year, an approach which is likely to encourage even higher footfall and online traffic".
