Shoppers are out in full force at metro area malls to finish up some holiday shopping.

With Christmas just one week away-- if you're not done shopping-- it appears you're not alone.

With six fewer shopping days this holiday season, retailers are helping out.

"USA Today" reports Macy's, Nordstrom, Target and Toys "R" Us all have longer hours happening now, or coming up. On weekends Macy's will be open until 2 a.m. and Target will stay open until midnight. For the fourth straight year Toys "R" Us will stay open for four straight days. Starting Saturday at 6 a.m. the store will stay open for 87 hours, finally closing at 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

KSTP's Bill Lunn has some shopping tips to find sales and beat the crowds.
