The Best of South Florida: Best Last Minute Shopping
Procrastinators be warned: Christmas is just one week away. So if you've fallen behind in your gift giving, we have a simple solution to save your sanity. Here's a look at our viewers top picks for last minute holiday shopping.
(WSVN) Christmas present procrastinators better pick up the pace.
Last minute shoppers are running out of time.
"We're like down to the wire here."
"I'm a frazzled mother, last minute shopping, getting some of my last minute things."
"I'm not even stressing."
"I'm kind of panicing at this point."
But there's no need to panic if head to our viewer's number three pick, Sears in Aventura.
"We offer an exceptional collection of hand picked items that will please eveyone on your list."
From tools to tvs to hi-tech toys you can find the top technology.
"One of the things that Sears has is like the television."
Customers say they keep coming back 'cause you can always find what you need, when you need it most.
"They always have what you want and at the last minute it's always here."
"If you can wish it, you can find it here at Sears."
But if you're looking for a place that hits the spot, our viewers number 2 pick is Target in Fort Lauderdale.
"It's a lot better organized than most places."
And organization counts.
People say the presentation makes shopping a success.
"It's neater, it's easier to find age appropriate toys in the right section without things being on the floor."
Plus you can't beat the convenient customer service.
"If I need help, its easy to find somebody they're usually very cool about it."
"That's the number one priority for us."
And the very best last minute shopping has to be one stop shopping because time has simply run out and our viewers say, when it comes to the biggest best selection under one roof, it has to be Walmart.
"It's easier for me to just go to one spot and look for everything."
But at the Walmart supercenter in Hialeah Gardens, you won't have to look hard.
They can fulfill the most demanding wish list and do it in a hurry.
"They have a large variety."
"We're 24 hours."
"It's much cheaper."
Customers call it a sensational selection.
"You can go grocery shopping toy shopping clothes shopping every shopping at once."
And best of all, when you're done, you can treat yourself to a mangnificent manicure.
"If Walmart doesn't have it, you don't need it."
Next week, have you been naughty or nice? We'll show you the Best Places to Meet Santa.
