Last-Minute Shoppers Fill Stores in Salisbury this Christmas Eve

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- This Christmas Eve many on Delmarva hit the stores to get some last minute presents, for shoppers late is better than never.

"I've been just busy with work," says Ashley Price from Salisbury.

Price started her holiday shopping early on Christmas Eve to try to avoid big crowds.

"I came here to Ross, found what I was looking for here, but I'm still not done," says Price "it's the calm before the storm, I'm going over to Walmart, so I know it's gonna be a mess."

Some shoppers prefer to go out on Christmas Eve because of the deals.

"I had things prepared, I had things wrapped, I just needed a few extra things," said Kayla Rider from Secretary.

For business owners, Christmas Eve is often a big day because last-minute shoppers can't get the presents they need online.

"If you shop online, you need to order in advance to get it before Christmas," says Joe Wright, president of Vernon Powell Shoes. "Those who didn't put their orders in will have to find a place to shop in town. We are always busy on Christmas Eve."
