Last Minute Shopping

Posted: Updated:

Texomans rushed to the malls to get their last minute holiday shopping done Monday, bringing in a lot of foot traffic at Sikes Senter Mall.

Shoppers swarmed stores cutting it close down to the wire, to get their hands on some last minuet deals on Christmas Eve.
 
Store mangers said they even sold out of some inventory, causing for some frustrated shoppers.

Retail stores were prepared for the heavy foot traffic. Store managers also said seasonal employees have helped ease the situation.

Chance Trevino, Manager at Perfume Max, said, "For Christmas what we do is start early in the month and go ahead and hire seasonal help." Trevino added,  "That's how we get through the month of December. The majority of our sales for the year is made during this month."

Matt Field, General Manager at Baskins Western Wear, said, "Being in the mall and having two entrances, it was a bit hectic. It made a big difference for me having extra help to be able to watch everything."

Retailers often depend on the holiday shopping season for up to  40% of yearly sales.
