CHERRY HILL, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — It's last call for shoppers looking to get their loved ones that special gift.
For Charla Sinclear, at the Cherry Hill Mall, shopping on Christmas Eve is like a sport, and it's one she's been playing for years.
"Because it more exciting. The rush is more exciting, and you would be amazed at the sales you would get," she said.

Sinclear says Christmas eve shopping is a tradition she and her sister used as their time to bond
"Unfortunately I lost my sister in September, but I have her son here to shop with me and keep up the tradition," she said.
Sinclear says, believe it or not, there are some big perks to waiting until the last minute to pick up those gifts.
"Parking," she said. "It's a breeze. We start at, like, 8 o'clock in the morning, and there's no lines. And you get the sales."
Like a lot of other folks getting those gifts at the last minute, Sinclear says it's better late than never. And everyone will be okay, as long as they have something under the tree on Christmas morning.
