The Saturday before Christmas is more commonly referred to as "Super Saturday".

Of people surveyed, 44.8 percent said they are still weighing choices between gifts.

"I am attending grad school in North Carolina and just got home the week before Christmas, so I am trying to get it all done in one day", she said.

With the holiday's around the corner, the store was busy Friday morning.

Campos is not the only shopper with a few items left on her Christmas list.

If you still haven't gotten presents for your friends and family yet, don't fret you're not alone.

People take to Chapel Hills Mall for.

"Birthdays and holidays have to always be special", said May Jackson, who was also shopping.

"Gift cards can be creatively wrapped to make the gift a more personal one", she said.

As local retailers head into the final stretch of their busiest time of year they appear pleased with the Christmas shopping season thus far.

"Finding the ideal time of day to shop at the last minute, where the lines will not cause you anxiety, can be a real challenge", she said.

The Simon-owned Gloucester Premium Outlets in Blackwood, N.J., will be open 9 a.m.to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. on Sunday; Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Limerick will open 10 a.m.to 10 p.m. Friday; 8 a.m.to 10 p.m. Saturday; and 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Stores are open around the clock, opening up early and staying open late, giving you extra time to complete your shopping. That's according to a recent New York Post article.

Old Navy: 7 a.m. -7 p.m.

Target is also offering online ordering and in-store pickup on Christmas Eve until 6 p.m. Nordstrom even does curbside pickup, so you don't even have to get out of your vehicle.

Many retailers have hours designed for the last-minute gift-giver.

"Most of my shopping is done at the last minute", Booker said.

While he got gifts for his father, mother, and younger brother Thursday at Cherry Hill Mall, he still has his girlfriend's gift - a two-day getaway - that he plans to purchase online at by Christmas Eve.

Target: Closes 10 p.m.
