Last-minute Christmas shopping proves profitable for downtown retailers

Even with Christmas right around the corner, some shoppers are getting their last-minute gifts bought and stuffed under the tree. Monday was the busiest shopping day for downtown retailers since Midnight Madness.

Kim Redeker of the Sweet Granada says her biggest seller every day, but especially yesterday, was the Pop-Choc.

Most businesses downtown will be open Christmas Eve, at least with shortened hours.
