Christmas shoppers are in a hurry

December 23, 2004

Albany - Shoppers are running out of time to shop until they drop.

Last minute present buyers crowded stores in Albany on Thursday.

While some are annual procrastinators and like a challenge, others have just been too busy this season to shop early. Shopper, Kelley Bradshaw, says, " I know it's terrible, but we've got so many to shop for and we have a lot of family, so that's what we're doing is getting last minute shopping for our daddy."

Another shopper, Gary Solomon, says, "Been busy, been running. I've got to find gifts for my sister and mom, I'm just late."

Friday should be a busier shopping day because most people have off Christmas Eve.
