Last full weekend of Christmas shopping

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR – It’s the last full weekend to find Christmas presents for loved ones and shoppers at McCain Mall in North Little Rock packed the stores looking to check everyone off their list.

Those super brave people who fought the parking lots and the checkout lines dealt with wall to wall people browsing the shops. Some shoppers, like Joyce Eads, not looking for anything in particular. “So far it’s been really neat. It hasn’t been a hassle yet.”

Others, like Elkeshia Fields, say bumper to bumper parking lots and elbow to elbow aisles is not her idea of a good time. “It’s terrible. It’s too crowded, but it’s fun looking at everything.”

Most shoppers agree people out on this last full weekend of shopping before Christmas are at least being polite and friendly. Richard Brown says the satisfaction of finding the perfect present is worth the headaches and hassle. “The parking was awful, but waiting in line wasn’t too bad. I just retired from the military, so I’m used to hurry up and wait, and I’m used to lines.”

McCain Mall will be open on Saturday, Christmas Eve, until 6pm for people who are waiting until the very last minute to purchase presents.
