Shoppers at Lakeside Mall were seen Friday carrying multiple bags just two and a half days before Christmas.

Several shoppers said they waited until now because they were busy with work. 

Some said they're done getting gifts for others and are out here treating themselves.

Several stores were packed like Sephora, and of course Apple where people are getting the latest electronics.

Others say they like waiting until now to get their gifts because they feel like they beat the initial rush.

Some families are taking their kids out to the mall to enjoy some of the attractions at the mall like the train ride.

Those who still need to shop can go to the mall, which will be open until Christmas Eve at 6 p.m.
