Last Minute Christmas Shopping

The countdown to Christmas Morning is on, and people continue crowding stores around Amarillo to get their last minute gifts.

Many retail chains and local stores extend hours to accommodate crowds.

Cars filled the parking lots, and people filled the aisles inside.

Many larger stores now offer a feature where you can make your purchase on-line, and then go into the store and pick it up.

Store workers we spoke with have noticed an increase this year in these dot com pick-up orders.

Most stores open today around Amarillo will close at 6pm, and remain closed through Christmas.
