With Christmas less than a week, away thousands of people have been out checking off the last few items on their Christmas lists.
Businesses in downtown Tifton have seen a busy holiday season.
Store owners say that people have been busy buying gifts over the last two weekends.
For stores like Julie's Closet...their December sales have been higher than any other month's during the year.
They have also seen an increase in new customers this time of year.
"This holiday season has been wonderful for us. We've seen a lot of different people coming into our town that normally we have not seen. They are from out of town...which has been great," said Penny Corneal of Julie's Closet.
Corneal said they do not expect the rush to slow down until after the new year.
