Last-minute shoppers flock to the mall

Trees are decorated and stockings are hung by the chimney with care, but many Pine Belt shoppers are still searching for that perfect gift.

With two final shopping days left, the stores were overflowing Tuesday with last-minute shoppers. 

"I'm doing some last-minute shopping for my girlfriend," said one Turtle Creek Mall patron.

"I'm purchasing cologne for my husband," said another. "And I told him he should be happy. He's on the 'Naughty List.'"

But Santa Claus had a few words of good news to share: there's still time to make it onto the "Nice List" before Santa leaves the North Pole.

"The 'Nice List' is longer than the 'Naughty'," said Santa. "The sleigh is loaded and everything is ready to go."

Turtle Creek Mall will be open Christmas Eve from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
