Last Minute Shopping Frenzy

Plenty of people headed to the mall Friday to pick up those last minute Christmas gifts.

The Greenville Mall was packed Friday afternoon with customers.

Retailers are trying to lure in shoppers with big deals. Many stores had signs with 30 to 50 percent off, even up to 80 percent off.

We talked with shoppers who said they've found great deals this year and retailers say they've been very busy this holiday season. Greenville Mall Manager Nathan Kelly says, "It's been great, well ahead of our expectations. Nationally the retail sales forecast was just updated from 2.8 to about 3.8 percent and we are certainly seeing that and feeling that here in Greenville."

Kelly also says that the mall is right on target to not only meet last years holiday sales, but to exceed them.
