LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – It’s just a few days away from Christmas and many buyers are scrambling to get everything on their list. Some items may be harder to find, but retailers do their best to get your business.
“I still have to do more shopping because I travel. I bring gifts. I will probably do some more shopping, ”said Lorena Tippetts, a customer.
The holiday race is on to find the perfect gifts, whether it’s fashion, housewares or tech gadgets.
Las Vegas point-of-sale retailers have gone out of their way to get customers into stores after a tough season last year due to the pandemic.
“I like to see what I get and I like to have it. I don’t like to wait to get here, ”said Stephanie Morfin, another customer.
Some people think that shopping online is more convenient because of the delivery options.
“I think online it’s better because they have top notch expeditions and they have diversity. I don’t think you can find everything in the stores and you have a lot of options online, ”Tippetts added.
This Saturday – also known as Super Saturday is the last weekend before Christmas.
The national retail federation predicts that day that more than 148 million consumers plan to buy online and in stores.
The last minute rush isn’t for everyone.
“I hate the rush at the very end, so I’m usually done for Thanksgiving,” said Marlene Wilson, a tourist.
As a last resort, Amazon offers these last minute shopping deals to Privileged Members. They can buy until December 24 to order items and still get them under the tree for Christmas.
