Thousands of last-minute shoppers hit WC, HV malls

Thousands of shoppers descended upon area malls today to pick up last-minute deals with mere hours remaining until Christmas.

"I'm not a first-minute shopper," says Kiya Galloway. "I like doing things last minute, its better, better decision making."

Many stores, including Toys 'R' Us, have had extended hours in hopes of shoppers picking up a few extra items to put under the tree.

For store employees, they are just waiting for the holidays to be over, especially after all the long hours.
