Last minute shoppers visit Monument Mall in Scottsbluff

Posted: Updated:

Buying last minute gifts is on the agenda for some Christmas shoppers in Scottsbluff today.

Store-goers flocked to Herbergers at the Monument Mall for big sales hoping to buy gifts for loved ones on Christmas Eve.

But with Christmas less than 24 hours away, getting last minute items looked easy for some, others decided to wait after Christmas.

"Well I wanted to buy the wife something but I don't dare." Jack Winland of Scottsbluff smiled. "Wanted to buy her a coat but a man can't buy a woman a coat without her seeing it. Then I walked through the store and I saw several things that I wanted to get but I'm going to bring her back the day after Christmas and shop."

One mother said she brought her kids along to keep them occupied for a bit while she shopped.

"It wasn't busy at all like I thought it would be. I made a plan of action and we got in and got out." Said Amber Holten of Scottsbluff.

Despite last minute shopping, experts say this year, Americans who are still worried about the economy have held back on their spending.

Sales at stores have fallen for three consecutive weeks.
