Last-minute shoppers pack stores

Posted at 11:35 PM, Dec 23, 2015

It's that time of year again. Shoppers pack local malls trying to find the perfect gifts. Some finish all their shopping Black Friday, while other's wait until the last minute to take home the perfect gift.

"I guess I just put it off," said Brittany Bolden. "I kept saying I was going to go today, tomorrow, and now I'm here."

For Mark Kulczyk, shopping for the perfect gift isn't always easy. He shops for gifts last minute each year. "It takes me all year to find out exactly what my wife wants," he said.

We followed Kulczyk around the mall, shopping with him until he found the perfect gift.

While the mall was packed, shoppers did have additional time to pick out their gifts. The Walden Galleria has extended its hours this holiday season, closing its doors at 11 p.m.

Anchor stores like Macy's and Lord & Taylor are open even later than the mall. Macy's closed at midnight, and Lord & Taylor at 1 a.m.

There is still time to hit the stores. The Walden Galleria will be open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Christmas Eve.
