Last Minute Shoppers Crowd Monroe Outlet Mall

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

MONROE, OH (FOX19) - 'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the mall, there were last minute shoppers, men most of all.

"I do this every year, every year," said shopper Chet Mays.

"I wouldn't say I'm a procrastinator, but I did hem and haw a little bit this year, so I'm looking to wrap it up today," said Ed Dian.

They bought presents and gifts for loved-ones so dear, but wished they had started earlier in the year.

"Last year I was finished by early December, so much less stressful," Tami Hubbard said.

"So, I'm out here scurrying trying to find things," Tess Sizemore said.

Cincinnati Premium Outlets was the mall many shoppers touted, they say being outside made it feel less crowded.

" I don't like to be claustrophobic in stores, so this is a good area for me," Mays said.

"It's nice, it's cold, but lots to choose from," Hubbard said.

Shoppers finished their list and checked it twice, leaving St. Nick to decided if they were naughty or nice.

"We're doing stocking stuffers this year so I have to get them for grandkids, my great grandkids," Sizemore said.

"Put a few things back in the truck and going back for more," Mays said.

And away they went until out of sight, Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.
