Albany- Ron Smith is hard at work checking out customers shopping for hippest and newest cell phone accessories.
"There's a lot of kids wanting cell phones for Christmas, and it's just been a prosperous Christmas for us," says Ron Smith of Wireless Dimensions.
Just feet away vendors at Shirley's Potpourri are busy helping customers take home scented gifts.
"In the middle of the month this year it sort of slacked off more so than we've normally seen, but it's beginning to pick up. This past week has been good week and we're expecting the rest of the season to be real busy," says Julian Hood of Shirley's Potpourri.
Vendors say it's seems more shoppers than usual waited until the last minute and by the looking at the heavy traffic at the mall, they may just be right.
When asked if she waited until the last minute Linda Whitten says "half and half like everybody else."
"I've got four more gifts, yeah about four," says Peggy Carter who's certain she'll find them by the end of the day.
Even with their last-minute scramble South Georgians didn't forget their last weekend before Christmas shopping necessities, a good pair of walking shoes, and enough strength to handle all the bags they'll take home.
If you didn't quite check everything off your Christmas shopping list yet, don't worry most stores have extended hours this weekend. The Albany mall will stay open until 9:30 PM.
