Last minute holiday shopping: what you need to know
BRISTOL, VA - Just days away from Christmas, this is the final chance to get those last minute holiday gifts. Senior floor Manager Rashid Elkhiat says sales at Cabela's are up this year from last. Last minute shoppers are buying bigger gifts as well as smaller stocking stuffers. According to the national retail federation, people are taking more time to decide what to buy and they're looking for unique gifts.
The retail federation says shoppers usually have about half of their shopping completed by this point, with only 10% finished. Experts say to make a list of what you need before you go, but to stay open to other options. They also recommend setting a time limit for yourself. You could also try shopping during the week to avoid store traffic.
If you're looking for a gift on a grander scale, Cabela's now has a new boating center as well.
