Albany - - We are moments away from the Easter holiday. While many of you will be preparing for church services Sunday and getting those perfect dresses and suits for the kids, Saturday also meant last minute shopping for those favorite Easter treats. 

All day long, stores in the area were packed with people picking out baskets, candy, and clothes. Target in Albany is no exception.

They say traffic in the store has been steady from open to close. Shoppers have been getting their Easter supplies for weeks preparing for the holiday. That's why those waiting to the last minute may have found a few items missing from the shelves. 

"Usually if we're short on any supplies, it means that sales have been good and so far sales have been really good. I'll say that our chocolate is starting to diminish a little bit, but that's all a part of the holiday," says Target employee Amy Clark.

The eggs that are associated with Easter symbolize new life that returns to nature during the season. Scholars say the tradition of exchanging eggs began long ago when Egyptians and Persians exchanged eggs decorated in Spring colors.

Christians recognize Easter as a time to remember the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
