Final Stretch For Christmas Shoppers

With less than a week left, shoppers hit the final stretch for Christmas shopping. From large retailers to small, local shops, they are kicking their bargain-hunting into high gear for the perfect gift.

“I just didn’t have time before now, so I got to get out there at the last-minute and fight the crowds like everybody else,” David Yarbough said.

Yarbough and his wife shopped Sunday night with hundreds of other gift-seekers at the Best Buy off Gunbarrel Road in Chattanooga. They were looking for high-tech gifts to fulfill their teenagers’ wish lists.

Managers at the electronics giant say video games, computers and TVs are red-hot items this season.

Still, others prefer local, handmade collectibles.

“We go to a lot of places people don’t expect. We’re just want to find something that’s unique,” Cecilia Garcia says, while looking at jewelry and small pottery at the Art Creations Shop on the North Shore.

But no matter the preference, time is running out. Retail managers in the area say, nevertheless, don’t worry. Stores will have extended hours, opening early and staying open late, throughout the week. Shoppers can also buy online.
