Shoppers try to make deadline

December 22, 2002

Albany- Old Saint Nick will be here in three days, and many shoppers say if they don't hurry they may not make the deadline. Many shoppers also told us what the most expensive items on their Christmas lists are, and they say the gift may be pricey, but it will be worth the joy it will bring to the receivers.

Others, like Scott Hepinstall, traveled from Michigan just to be with his girlfriend's family, and he says it's shopping days like this that make Christmas so special. Not only are shoppers getting in the holiday day spirit, so are store owners, like Sudden Delivery owner, Tim Johnson. He says he's busy now, but after Christmas, he will be busier.

Shoppers will continue to take over stores all over south Georgia, hoping that all this effort makes someone happy on Christmas day.

Many store owners say they are already trying to prepare for one of the busiest days of the year, the day after Christmas.
