With Christmas Eve just a week away, that means last minute shoppers will be out scrambling to find the perfect gift for that special someone.

Colony Square Mall representative Kevin Pinson says while you may only have a week left to shop, don’t let it come to push and shove.

"Well first off give yourself plenty of time. This is always the craziest week with last minute shoppers. Of course the retailers encourage that with a lot of last minute deal," says Pinson.

For those still stuck on what to buy for their loved ones, the Colony Square Mall may hold the perfect hand-made answer.

"If there are any shoppers looking for some unique gift ideas, we do have our hobbies, crafts and collectibles show this weekend. A great place to find some homemade gifts from local crafters who are really talented and have some great stuff out there, " says Benson.

Mall hours have been extended through Christmas Eve when the mall will close at 6pm. For complete mall hours, check out their web site at
