Those ever so recognizable bells are ringing, cars filling up parking lots and crowds of people heading to the local shopping spots to get those last few items.

Most shoppers say one thing is true they definitely waited to the last minute and are rushing to get everything done.

A few popular shopping destinations were very busy including the Barracks Road Shopping Center and Fashion Square Mall.

On top of the obvious procrastinator, the unusually nice weather we're experiencing brought out even more shoppers.

Even those making big tech purchases encountered crowds. Best Buy was full of families trying to pick out those perfect gifts.

A big hit among shoppers though, the sales! Some say they're seeing even better sales Super Saturday than what they saw the day after Thanksgiving.

Typically Super Saturday is ridden with one-day sales in order to boost year end revenue. For many businesses it's turned into such a big event that some have started extending their store hours for the one-day affair.
