WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The last minute Christmas rush is underway.   It's bumper to bumper traffic on Hanes Mall Boulevard as shoppers aim for those last minute gifts or look for deals.

"Not done shopping yet," said Leah Cook who is sticking to a shopping plan.  "Know where you want to go, make a list, check it twice and stick to it."

Some shoppers say they wait until the last minute to score on those last minute sales.  Many stores will slash prices in an effort to move inventory before Christmas. 

"I'm already done," said mother of two Christine Taylor who got started early this year. 

"Some of the stuff I had to get earlier and I was not going to procrastinate."
