Down to the Wire: Last minute holiday shopping

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM- Twas the night before the night before Christmas and hundreds maybe even thousands were shopping.

"Trying to find my husband some shoes; he was looking the 11's.  I've been in three lines and they sold out right in front of me," Morrow said.

The 11's are not just any ordinary pair of shoes but the new brand of Air Jordan's that went on sale- midnight Friday and sending hundreds around the country into frenzy.

 Leondre McKee and his friends were able to snag a pair for his daughter

"I went to about five stores all the way on the north side now I am down here," McKee said.

McKee got away paying at the most 40 bucks for his daughters shoes but our friend Chandra will pay $180 retail price for the new Air Jordan's bringing it to about $200 for the sneakers after taxes.

Which proves nothing, not even money will stand in the way of last minute shopping. Even the big guy in red says there is nothing wrong with shopping late.

"Even if it's done at the last minute its done with good intentions and that counts for something," Kringle said.
