NJ Shoppers Brave Malls For Last Minute Gifts [POLL]

Stacy Proebstle, Townsquare Media

Didn’t start Christmas shopping yet? Well, you’re not alone. Hundreds of people are out picking up last minute gifts across New Jersey.  Two days before the 25th and the rush to finish up is on.

“I usually wait until the last minute, so for me this is early” said a woman from Brick.

“It’s always Christmas Eve, I’m running around like a chicken without a head but I think I got it taken care of this year” said Bill from Manasquan.

Toys, clothes, electronics…you name it, people are buying it. “We’re looking for a phone for my dad” said one teen.

“I need to find a nice color printer for my sister” said a woman from Colts Neck.

While a lot of the stores are keeping the shelves stocked, don’t expect boxes or bags from a lot of them.

“That’s the hard part about being a late shopper, you miss all the freebies and nice gift boxes.”

As the clock clicks down to Christmas, some are enjoying the stress, “I get that burst of energy just to get it done” said one man.

Others, like Catherine from Wall Township, are stressed out. “Don’t ever wait until two days before the holiday, I’m freaking out”
