BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - While some may have beaten the rush of last minute shoppers, a handful of others spent their Christmas Eve digging through store shelves.

Shoppers say a major perk took some of the pain out of long lines though.

"They have a lot of deals here and I've been coming here like four days in a row. No lie. So I've just been picking up everything, jackets, jewelry, a lot of stuff, but today's my birthday, so I'm just looking forward to good last minute shopping for my grandmother," said Bree Smith, a last minute shopper.

Some of the shoppers say long work schedules forced them to wait so long to pick up gifts for family and friends.
