Shoppers were out on Christmas Eve looking for last minute deals on holiday gifts.
“To be honest my life is really busy and all the time I’m doing the last time for shopping, I’m that type of person,” said shopper Sharon Altamirano.
Altamirano made multiple stops Friday, shopping for friends, family and her boyfriend.
“I’m not organized at all, so I was like, ‘Okay, it’s morning. I’m going to do it today,'” she said.
Altamirano joked she was saved the best for last.
“That will be my boyfriend. I didn’t buy anything for him, so I need to hurry,” she said.
Rodney Bond and Lafecia Watkins took advantage of a 5-hour layover in Salt Lake on their way home to Tennessee from a vacation trip to Hawaii. They say last minute shopping can be stressful.
“Especially around this time since COVID,” Watkins said. “It’s a lot of things that you can’t get to and last-minute shopping.”
