DOVER, Del. (WBOC)- Every year the holiday shopping season seems to start earlier and earlier but it always ends at the same time.

Lots of people came out to the Dover Mall on Tuesday to do some last-minute shopping.

At around noon, Isaiah Greene was getting a number of gifts wrapped up at Boscov's department store.

"Last minute shopping. Picking up some stuff for my daughter, my brother," he said.

Guy Winer was out with his daughter Angela.

"Just getting some last minute shopping done," Guy said. "I have a busy work schedule. So, it was actually the first day that I had a chance to go out. My daughter was able to come out with me and hopefully find something my wife would love."

They ended up with jewelry.

"You can't go wrong with jewelry, can you?" Guy joked.

Lisa Taylor and Mia Harper were looking for a jacket.    

"I get spoiled - clothes, shoes, jackets, everything else," said Harper.

They were all willing to brave the crowds to get their shopping done.

"It felt like a maze," said Greene. "I'm going here, going there."

"We've been able to get in, get out and get what we need," Guy said.

Mall staff said that after 3 p.m. Christmas Eve Day things really began to get busy.

    In a plan approved by the legislature, full-time minimum-wage workers in Maryland will ultimately make about $875 less annually than they would have under the governor's proposed timetable, an economic analyst said. Legislators voted last week to have Maryland's minimum wage reach $10.10 an hour by July 2018, whereas Gov. Martin O'Malley originally wanted it to reach that amount by July 2016.More
