Last minute shoppers
Christmas is just one week away and some people are still doing some last minute shopping.
The Gulfport Premium Outlets has seen an influx of shoppers as it gets closer to the holiday, a surprise to some because most people are doing their shopping online.
Rhonda Roberts with the Outlets tells News 25 that sales have been good for the season and with a lot of deals, shoppers are keeping the place busy.
Roberts explains if you have plans to do some last minute gift searching, make sure to check out websites to plot where you need to go and see who has the best deals. “Pretty much every store has a sale going on. A lot of the stores this week will mark the store like 50 percent off or 50-70 percent off the entire store. Banana Republic has up to 75 percent off clearance. It’s just a time they’re really going to clear out those holiday deals.”
Gulfport Premium Outlets extended their hours on Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 8 to 10 and Sunday 9 to 6.
