SALISBURY, Md.- If you waited until the last minute to shop this Christmas Eve, you weren't alone in Salisbury. 

People kept local stores and the mall busy trying to pick up a gift or two on Monday.

Even the rain didn't stop cars from packing the Centre at Salisbury.

John Peters was driving one of those cars because he said he still needed to find some presents. 

"Well we couldn't decide so we had to wait until the last minute to make our mind up," Peters said, "and we could not figure out what we wanted, so we figured today we had the opportunity and we just slipped out real quick to see what we could find."

Some shoppers said they did not feel guilty about waiting at the last minute because after all that is the best time to find the good bargains.

"I just tend to get the best deals at the end," said Dan Collins of Hebron.  

While many people were rushing to the mall to get their last minute shopping done some other people were seen strolling the mall just to carry on a family tradition.

"We love being together so this is what we do," said Melanie Gladden. "We love to just come out here and just see a lot of friends we usually don't see during the year."

Danny Thompson of Princess Anne said he made a one stop shop at the Hickory Farms kiosk and got it all done in one big swoop.

"It's good to come out on Christmas Eve," Thompson said, "and I know that everybody is in that panic mode but I am in a happy mode."

The mall closed its doors at 6 p.m. Monday and will remain closed on Tuesday. It will open back up at 7 a.m. Wednesday.
