Shoppers Looking for Last Minute Gifts
SHORT NORTH (Ben Garbarek) -- There are only a few days left before Christmas and many people are heading out trying to find last-minute gifts.
There were many shoppers out in the Short North Friday night.
"I got the serious gifts," said shopper Kelly Henninger. "Now I'm looking for the funny gifts, the zingers."
Some local businesses said it's been a good shopping season so far. Sales have been strong and the stores have been busy.
Shoppers said they're able to relax and spend a bit more this year.
"It seems like every year I spend a little more," said shopper Susan Kindler. "It's not so much because of the prices. There's more cool stuff."
Retailers are hoping for a strong finish with more last-minute shoppers.
"I want to be one of those people that starts months before," Henninger said. "But it just doesn't work out like that. Life makes me wait until, not the last minute, but four days before Christmas."
