Thousands of last-minute shoppers spent Sunday looking for gifts at local retail destinations. The Ohio Valley Mall and The Highlands were packed on Sunday with people looking for last minute gifts.
Some shoppers were buying big ticket items, while others shopped for stocking stuffers and last minute dinner supplies.
“Actually, I’m picking up paper supplies. I needed to get the napkins, the forks, the plates, because I am hosting Christmas this year. It will be my first year and I am really excited!” said Lynn Winiesdorffer of Wheeling.
Robb Wickham, also of Wheeling, said he was shopping for stocking stuffers when he ended up with a bigger purchase.
“We’re doing a lot of shopping and just keep on going, four days left and we’re just keeping on going,” said Don Dunaway of Wheeling.
The Ohio Valley Mall will remain open until 11 p.m. In the days leading up to Christmas, while individual stores at The Highlands have extended holiday hours.
