Hundreds of people shop the racks at Rushmore Mall in Rapid City on this last day to buy those gifts before Christmas.
We caught last–minute shoppers taking advantage of last–minute deals. Some of the shoppers we spoke to admit they’re procrastinators. Some say they even get a rush from the crowds, the lines, and the deals this close to Christmas Day.
“I do the same thing every year,” admitted Travis Fisher. “I’m always shopping for my wife and I’m always waiting till the last, last–minute.”
“I’m a pretty big procrastinator; I’ve just always been that way,” said shopper Taylor Rave.
“I started a few months ago,” added Joshua Schleuusner.” “It’s been a slow process but I’ve got a busy schedule so I had to get it done when I could.”
But the deals could be even better if you can hold off until after Christmas. Analysts say there will be even deeper discounts beginning Monday as merchants look to clear their holiday merchandise.
