If you're heading to the mall for a last-minute gift, you might just find a great deal along with a few other procrastinators.

A lot of shoppers are trying to complete their last-minute shopping and find just the right gifts.

"I'm horrible when it comes to last-minute Christmas shopping. I'm usually stricken by a last-minute thought of, 'Oh hey that's a great idea, why didn't I think of that before?'" Mike Ham said.

Of those procrastinators who did wait until Tuesday morning to finish buying for everyone on their list, most had specific gifts and stores in mind to make it a quick and painless shopping trip.

Rosedale Center wasn't terribly busy, so that made it a little easier for the procrastinators.

"I took today off so I could get it all done, and I like being out with the people," Susan Kramer said. "I think people are in a great mood today."

Rosedale Center closes at 5 p.m. Find more information about stores with extended hours here.
