Time is running out if you still have some Christmas shopping to do.
By the looks of the Greenville Mall Tuesday, shoppers were trying to get their gifts now before Saturday.
There are extended hours for those who are waiting until the last minute, according to mall manager Nathan Kelly. But shoppers we spoke to say they hope they can finish now, so they don't have to brave the crowds and long lines later.
The Greenville Mall will open at 9:00 am and close at 6:00 pm Christmas Eve. Some other malls in the east have extended hours. The Jacksonville Mall and the Vernon Park Mall in Kinston will open from 7:00 am until 6:00pm. The New Bern Mall will be open from 8:00am- 6:00pm.
