What? Does everyone have their shopping done as there's parking spots everywhere at The Streets at Southpoint. pic.twitter.com/yOEKGFEat2— Diane Wilson (@DWilsonABC11) December 23, 2016
As the day went on, the crowds came out and the stores were packed. Several businesses are offering deep discounts to lure in the shoppers. One store even had a 60% off sale. Many of the people out shopping are dads with their children. They are trying to find the perfect gift for mom. Some shoppers say the crowds are not as bad they thought it would be today.
The one place that had an extra-long line is the line for Santa Claus. Kids, young and old were lined up to make sure he knew exactly what they wanted this Christmas.
