Are you one of those panicked shoppers? | News
BENTON, IL (KFVS)- There are only days
between now and December 25. And like many, people are rushing to the stores to
find that last minute gift.
Are you one of those panicked
When it comes to antique
shopping, there are a few things Ken Burzynski says you need to know.
"Buy what's good and
what's unique," said Burzynski, owner of County Seat Antique Mall.
During the holiday rush to
get those last minute gifts, he sees the same thing every year, especially from
a certain type of customer.
"People always shop
at the last minute, especially men and then they come in and they don't care
what an item costs," said Burzynski. "They are just looking for the right
item, they are just looking for the right item and they will buy it."
Charles Swisher waited
until Saturday to snag the perfect gift for his wife. It's a strategy that he uses every year.
"Just wait, I get a
bargain," said Swisher. "See the price on that went down since the
last time I was here."
But according to Burzyski,
shoppers should act fast. That's especially since it's the weekend before Christmas.
"We expect this afternoon
to pick up and towards the end of the day we will be very, very busy,"
So, as customer shop for what's
left on their gift lists, there is one thing Swisher thinks is true.
Do you think men are
typical last minute holiday shoppers?
"The majority, not
all of them," said Swisher.
Christmas shopping is a
lot easier when you have a little help.
"She does the rest of
it!" said Swisher.
If you're planning on shipping any of
those last minute gifts, you might be out of luck.
The deadline to ship presents in time
for Christmas has already passed.
