You can expect some busy days at the mall this week.

If you’re just starting your holiday shopping, you’re not alone. According to a new study by a retail performance company, last-minute buying is the most popular way to shop for the holidays.

Out of nearly 3,000 Americans surveyed, just over half of them say they will shop between now and Christmas. That’s compared to 24 percent who did their shopping on Black Friday and 23 percent of Americans who bought holiday gifts on Cyber Monday.
