Last minute shoppers shouldn't wait till last minute as stores close early Christmas Eve

CLEVELAND - You better get up early Tuesday if you still need to shop the day before Christmas. Most stores we contacted said they are closing early for the holiday.

From restaurants, to grocery stores, to retail shops, most plan to close their doors by 6.p.m. on Christmas Eve.

"There are always a few people that come running in at 6 o'clock," said Burt Saltzman, owner of Dave's Supermarket. "We try and take care of them, but it would be nice if they got here before six.

Most shoppers we spoke with said the deals are gone. "The deals will be after Christmas," said Tearra Smith, who was shopping for her girls. "I feel like I do better under pressure," said Erin Kelley, shopping with her mom Lisa, heading into TJ Maxx. "With only a few days left I can get it all done," she continued.
