Plenty of shoppers waiting until last minute

FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - With only a little more than 48 hours away from Christmas there are still thousands of Tri-State shoppers busy getting those last minute gifts.

Many stores are even keeping their doors open a little later tonight to accommodate shoppers.

Some store managers say this year there have been more last minute shoppers than in previous years.

"My job had required a lot more hours of me recently and therefore I've been working rather than shopping," said Michelle Woodard. "So I'm doing my last minute shopping today."

"We're getting gift cards for those we don't know what to get and hopefully we can find those special items," said Dionna Davis. "We're having fun doing it."
