DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - The clock is ticking down to Christmas day. With just a few hours left until midnight, shopping centers and malls across North Texas have been filled to the brim today.

Some were procrastinators.  Others were cashing in on last minute discounts.

Jason and Shannon Snead finished their shopping early online, but delayed arrivals have them out today shopping all over again.

“Several things have not arrived that we ordered for the kids and a couple of different things just haven’t made it there yet,” said Shannon.

The Sneads are not alone.

“We’ve seen a lot of people that have done online shopping.  Unfortunately with all the shipping problems that have happened, their gifts have not arrived,” said NorthPark spokesperson Victoria Snee.  “So people have had to come out to the malls, even thought they finished their shopping, to make sure they have gifts under the tree.  Because no one wants a Christmas with no gifts under the tree.”

Last minute shoppers are in luck, with nearly all the stores at NorthPark Center offering some kind of Christmas Eve sale.  Retailers aren’t doing so bad either, says Snee.

“We’ve had record breaking crowds out at NorthPark last weekend, and even today we’re actually up 15% in holiday sales this year.  So we will surpass over a billion dollars.”
