ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The rain kept some holiday shoppers at home Monday night.

Normally, the mall would be extremely busy this close to Christmas but it wasn't.

We did find one shopper who drove 45-minutes to do her shopping, specifically because she knew the rain would keep others away.

"To avoid the crowds which worked out good for us, we saw Santa and didn't have to wait in line at all so that was a plus," said Mary Ann Harmon.

Some business owners told us they expect they'll easily make up for Monday night's slow sales once the weather improves.
