Stores Stay Open Late

As the Christmas deadline grows near, stores are staying open late to try to lure in that procrastinating shopper.



    Stores Stay Open Late

    If you're a night owl, or a last minute shopper then there is great news. Some of the major have extended their hours.

    Select Macy's throughout Southern California, about 15 stores, are going to be open until 2 AM Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.

    And all Toys R Us stores are staying open 24 hours a day until 10 PM on Christmas Eve. That's 112 hours straight.

    Plenty of time to do last minute shopping, and plenty of people took advantage of the opportunity, flocking to the stores.

    "I didn't expect it was going to be that long. I know there's going to be a line, but not that long," says customer Babbles Lorca.

    "Midnight is a better choice for me," according to Linet Mahmody, customer.

    "It's pretty packed," says George Simonyan, customer. "It feels like Black Friday in there."

    And, of course, there are some extra deals if you shop after midnight in some stores.
