Over the next few days retail stores will be swamped with people doing their Christmas shopping.
Those retailers call it the home stretch. At the Conestoga mall in Grand Island, shoppers who waited until the last weekend before Christmas to get their gifts are hustling and bustling.
"We have no idea what we are getting so we are just kind of lost," said Shopper Sara Roth.
"We are working on our parents right now so that is the toughest thing to find," said Shopper Matt Panowicz.
Shoppers do seem to be finding what they want, but then some are still struggling.
"Just trying to get some shopping done and find last minute ideas," said Shopper Ron Bures.
Retailers say more shoppers are pulling out cash. A new survey by Consumer Reports shows 62% of last-minute shoppers are most likely to grab a gift card, while 27% will give cash.
"This week there is a lot of packages. About one out of every three people are carrying a package. Earlier this week you'd see about one in five," said Store Owner Rick Nolz.
"It gets more and more chaotic as we get right down to the wire. It'll be running time here shortly," said Store Owner Paul Teggart.
It's that chaos many shoppers say they don't want any part of this weekend.
"I think a lot of people will be out. Hopefully this will be our last day," said Roth.
