The clock is counting down to Christmas Day and last-minute shoppers are out in full force.
Friday was expected to be the busiest shopping day of the year. But procrastination shoppers appear to be in greater number than ever before. A Gallup Poll shows t he average spending for this year's holidays is up more than 10 percent from last year. We went to Toy-R-Us today and talked to shoppers about the search for last minute gifts.
"I'm trying to carry on the the tradition of last minute shopping with my kids," said Ben Johnson, a last minute shopper.
Toys-R-Us stores nationwide began an all-day, all-night marathon that started on Tuesday and runs through tonight.
