Customers rush to Gateway Plaza for last-minute holiday shopping

Posted: Updated:

Customers arrived at the Gateway Plaza bright and early Sunday morning for some last-minute shopping on the last weekend before the holidays.

Out in front of Target store there is already a long row of cars ahead of Hanukkah which begins Sunday night, and Christmas on Wednesday. Many shoppers are trying to ensure that they have bought all the gifts they need for their loved ones.

And while shopping at the last minute can be stressful, retailers are helping customers with last-minute deals and are some are offering last-minute shipping offers. Best Buy is offering free next-day delivery on thousands of items ordered by Monday. Target and Amazon are offering same day shipping through Christmas Eve.

And while shoppers are expected to take advantage of those options, many will try to complete their purchases early before the next rush of customers later in the day.
