ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With just under two weeks left in the holiday shopping season, stores at the Albany Mall say they are seeing more shoppers. It's the countdown to Christmas.

"Well since this holiday, Thanksgiving has shorten our shopping month by a week so traffic has been a little bit better than normal due to the shortening of the month," said Kevin Raible, Dillard's store manager.

With Christmas less than two week away, stores are getting busier by the day.

"This time of year we're on the grind. It's long hours. The managers are working ten hours shifts, were just grinding it out. We're excited to have a successful holiday shopping season," said Raible.

One shopper says she plans to spend a lot of money this season, shopping for other. But she can't help but get side tracked.

"Well I'm supposed to be Christmas chopping, but I'm shopping for myself right now," said Christy Sloan, shopper.

She says she having no trouble finding the perfect gift, with several sales going on.

"The prices are really good and I love all the percentages off especially when it gets closer to Christmas time," said Sloan.

Store managers believe the crowds will grow even larger in the final days before Christmas.
