The Countdown Is On: Busy Weekend For Shoppers

The Countdown Is On: Busy Weekend For Shoppers

The parking lot at the eastside Target is almost full and this weekend it could be even busier.

"I'm sure a lot of people will be out this weekend because the weather is supposed to be nicer. It's just going to be hectic in the next two weeks and especially for the last minute shoppers next weekend," Target shopper Kelli Ritter said.

Ritter and her husband plan on going shopping this weekend but they wanted to get an early start to their shopping and beat the rush.

"It takes a lot if planning. We have been talking about it for weeks and just going around getting prices and taking our time. We want to buy something that will be useful," Ritter said.

Target will be fully staffed on Saturday and Sunday. They are expecting a large turnout this weekend.

"I have a huge team ready and prepared to provide great guest service and have shelves stocked. We don't find it stressful. We find it fun," Target manager Stephanie Johnson said.

They are also providing some deals so their guests have a chance to save now that it's almost crunch time.

"Sweaters, shoes, toys are always big this week. We have a deal, buy one get one 50 percent off. Different toys of Fisher-Price, Barbie, those are awesome this weekend. People all ready to save some money while doing their Christmas shopping and they can be smart about what they are spending," Johnson said.

Another way to save is with the Cartwheel App, which allows customers to receive specials offers on their smart phone. Those who are interested can select the offers they want and add them to their Cartwheel for their next Target run.

Best Buy has deals on a number of their TVs and in case you want to avoid the crowds this weekend, they are offering free shipping for orders $25 or more.

But even in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, Ritter is looking forward to the things that matter most.

"I think that's what really matters, everyone is spending time with family and giving back to people that need it," Ritter said.
