Last minute shoppers head out to the mall in droves

With just five days left until Christmas, many shoppers are hoping to snag some last minute deals at the stores and they may be in luck.

Stores are still pushing sales and gimmicks to lure in shoppers, hoping they make that big buy. According to the National Retail Federation, those who waited to do their shopping can still expect to see aggressive promotions cajoling them into making purchases.

The consumer group also notes that 37 million Americans have yet to start their Christmas shopping, with men falling behind women. For the last minute shoppers that we spoke to, most say they will be happy with whatever they could find.
