Christmas Eve Shoppers Pack Local Malls

<div class="StoryBlock">
Last minute shoppers turned out in large crowds on Christmas Eve. Many places like Fashion Fair Mall opened as early as 7 am but that didn’t stop shoppers from waiting until the last few hours. <br /><br />&quot;There’s like five hours left I’m pretty good,&quot; Edward Baker said. <br /><br />Baker hasn’t done any holiday shopping. When he found out his sister was coming into town he headed to River Park. <br /><br />&quot;It’s my sister. I had to get her something. I haven’t seen her for a year so it’s good to see her,&quot; Baker said. <br /><br />For some waiting until the last minute turned out to be a good thing. Gone were the large crowds seen over the weekend. <br /><br />&quot;It was kinda calm and everything it’s not as wild as I thought it would be,&quot; Brenda Williams said. &quot;We are getting out and getting in so it’s fine right now.&quot;<br /><br />At Fashion Fair the last minute shopping mob was in full effect. Sports Station is seeing a busier Christmas Eve than last year. <br /><br />&quot;It’s a good thing. I mean we are real happy. Real tired at the end but it’s a good thing. This is why we are in business,&quot; Store Manager Juan Arellano said. <br /><br />Business is good but some worry if we are loosing the meaning of Christmas. <br /><br />&quot;Too many people. I feel like people should be spending time with their family,&quot; Chasty Carrillo said. <br /><br /></div>
