As the clock winds down on another holiday shopping season, area residents flock to local retailers to get those last minute items. Be it because of last minute deals, unforeseen family emergencies, or just to get out of the house after the first winter storm, hundreds of people filed into the Conestoga Mall in Grand Island to complete their list or just browse the deals from vendors.
For one shopper who usually gets her list done as early as September it's been a different experience.
"It's been great," said Laurie Carmichael. "Everyone's been extremely friendly. The sales people in all the stores have been right on top to help and very courteous. So, yeah, it's been a great shopping experience today."
Major chain stores such as JC Penney have extended hours until Christmas Eve.
