Updated On: Dec 21 2012 09:55:00 PM CST
Just a little more than 72 hours left and if you haven't started your Christmas shopping, better get going.
For some people they are going to need every single minute to get everyone's Christmas gift.
"We have eight kids and eleven grandchildren and the twelfth on the way," said shopper, Tracey Laird.
The Target in South Whitehall Township may not be staying open for 88 hours straight like some stores but they are open until midnight.
Plenty of time to see some big crowds.
"Each day we keep seeing more and more people in the store so we are excited to see even more crowds come tomorrow," said Jared Lyman, executive team leader at Target.
Workers say the hottest selling items are electronics and of course toys.
A lot of people they're just now starting Christmas shopping.
They say there are a lot better deals than on black Friday.
"They've got more clearances before the holiday," added Michael Santos, who started just started his shopping.
"The early bird gets the worm but when it comes to Christmas shopping for some reason real late, you wind up getting a better bargain at times," said Mark Laird
The shoppers are right. People are loading up the carts and until workers can restock the shelves that are empty.
Some say it's not a time to get caught up in the frenzy of last minute shopping.
"We have a good time with it," said Mark Laird. "We try to make it as fun as we can."
Fun buying all the gifts and everyone says a lot of fun watching people open the presents on Christmas day.
