More than 50K shoppers swarm Stew Leonard’s for last-minute items

More than 50,000 shoppers headed to Stew Leonard's in Yonkers Wednesday ahead of Christmas Eve.



"Today is the busiest day of the year for us, every single year," says Fred Salvino, the store's president.



More than 100,000 pounds of filet mignon, the day's biggest seller, were expected to be sold on Wednesday alone.



"Which is the equivalent of 1 pound per every person at Giants Stadium," says Salvino.
