Not done with your Christmas shopping? It’s okay, neither are many others around South Florida.

Hundreds made their way to the mall to buy last minute gifts.

Super Saturday shoppers waited until the final hours before Christmas to get their hands on in-store deals.

“I waited until the last minute. Bad idea, but some of the better sales are going on now. I agree completely,” said one shopper.

Almost half of Americans completed their holiday shopping during the week before Christmas or later. Many stores like Toys R Us and Kohl’s stay open 24-hours through Christmas Eve.

At Sawgrass Mills, the doors will remain open until midnight.

If you’re planning on ordering online, picking up in-store is the only way you’ll be able to get your goods in time. Target, Best Buy, Walmart and Toys R Us all offer pickup as late as Christmas Eve night.

“I did most of my shopping online for my parents and my sister,” said another shopper.

But for some, there’s no stress in the final moments of holiday shopping traffic.

“I like to stroll around, see what’s going on. A lot of tourists here from all over the world. It’s an interesting place to be,” said one shopper.

In some areas, Amazon is offering same-day delivery as late as midnight on Sunday for an extra fee.
