Malls Packed The Weekend Before Christmas

BOSTON (CBS) — It’s the final weekend before Christmas and malls are packed with shoppers.

At the Galleria Mall in Watertown, some shoppers say time is running out with just a couple of days left until Christmas.

On Saturday, the mall was packed, many said they will be back on Sunday to finish off their shopping list.

On the plus side, stores are giving shoppers big time deals and discounts to entice last-minute shoppers.

One shopper WBZ-TV spoke with had been at the mall for 7 hours.

“I thought it would be one or two (hours) but it took a long time,” she said.

If you want to get your shopping and wrapping done in one place, volunteers from Rosie’s Place are available all weekend to wrap presents.
