Some shoppers were still looking for Christmas gifts on Monday.
Many stores were staying open late on Christmas Eve in order to cash in on the procrastinators who were still out braving the crowds.
"It's really crowded, I've already been to lots of stores and it's very crowded," said shopper Michelle Jones.
The retail stores are not the only place to buy gifts on Christmas Eve. The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar traditionally stays open late on Christmas Eve.
"It's the last place to do your last minute Christmas shopping that's open with beverages and live music," said Amanda Barnett of the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar.
