Last minute shopping means extended hours for some stores

The clock continues to wind down with Christmas just three days away and those who are buying last minute gifts are not alone.
According to the National Retail Federation, as of last week, only half of Americans finished shopping.
One of those last minute shoppers includes Kim Hollandsworth.
"All of a sudden you go, oh my gosh, here it is, December and it's a frenzy because Thanksgiving was later than it normally is," Hollandsworth explained.
Hollandsworth is shopping with her son and she's hoping to cross a few more last minute items off her Christmas list.
"It's nuts and those last minute bargains and those last minute I want this because I've seen it all on television, got to run out and get it, I mean what am I going to do, let my kids down?"
Like a number of other stores all over the Grand Strand and in the Pee Dee, the Best Buy in Myrtle Beach extended their holiday hours just to accommodate so many last minute shoppers.
They opened up at 7 a.m. Sunday instead of their regular time at 10 a.m. They will close at midnight.
