With only three full days left before Christmas, many last-minute shoppers are scrambling to makes sure there's something for everyone on their lists.
Some valley stores are staying open later this weekend to accommodate holiday shopping procrastinators.
The Galleria at Sunset will stay open until 10 p.m. through the weekend. Kohl's and Macy's will be open around the clock Saturday and Sunday. On Christmas Eve, those stores will close at 6 p.m.
Some shoppers said they waited this long because stores offer bigger discounts closer to Christmas. Others, like shopper Joseph Carbon, didn't have an excuse.
"I'm a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to shopping, but I'll get it done today," he said.
The National Retail Federation predicts sales this holiday season will be about 4 percent higher than last year.
