This year's short shopping season has drawn a big crowd to the Albany mall. Mall officials say this year's traffic has been particularly busy, especially on Saturday.
Many were at the mall searching for the latest pair of Jordans that were just released. Other popular gift items include jewelry and even a new pet.
"The Saturday before Christmas is always busy we have seen a good bit of traffic.probably comparable to last year of course there being one less week to shop everyone is in a panic this week," Debbie Rowe, Marketing Coordinator.
And if you need someone to wrap your gifts workers are set up at a table outside of sears for a donation.
