Two days are left before Christmas, and last minute shoppers are making sure to use every last second. The final weekend before Christmas is always a busy time for retailers and Sunday was no different.

News10NBC was out at Greece Ridge Mall Sunday afternoon as shoppers scrambled to check off the remaining items on their lists. We spoke with one shopper who said she was putting the final touches on her shopping, but she knew others that were just getting started.

"There are always last minute shoppers," says shopper Patti Ferretti. "We just checked out with an elderly lady who said she just started her Christmas shopping today!"

Many stores are looking to capitalize on the last minute holiday rush. Most major retailers will be open on Christmas Eve.
