“The lines were ridiculous and I’m exhausted so I’m going to go home now,” Tiffany Garcia said in Montebello.
According to shoppertrack, it could be the second-highest sales event of the year, just behind black Friday.
“I always get in the same way, buy things and then right before it gets time for Christmas, I’m like I should get them more, it’s that time, it’s awesome,” Joshua Sandoval told CBS2’s Adrianna Weingold.
Some shoppers were all tuckered out after a long day hitting the mall, but there was a lot left to buy, and despite the holiday rush, the crowds kept on coming.READ MORE: Stanford Completes Season Sweep Of No. 15 USC, 64-61
Others like Emily Torres spent the morning getting her hair done, so she and her little sister could have their pictures taken with Santa.
Despite the crowds and last-minute shopping, Torres says it’s really all about being together during the holiday season.
“Just being with family, because they don’t come here a lot, and I just like being with my family,” Torres said.
