Santa taking last minute wishes as shoppers hustle to finish their lists

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. –  The parking lot at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg was packed through the evening hours on Christmas Eve.

Last minute shoppers braved the crowds Monday to complete their holiday gift list.

Most stores were promoting deep discounts and big sales and hoped to entice anyone struggling  or scrambling  to finish their holiday shopping.

Woodfield Mall and many others in the area  from Old Orchard on the North Shore to Fashion Outlets in Rosemont all close at 6 p.m.

And while many shoppers were dreading the chore, for those who still believe in the magic of Christmas, a trip to the mall was one last chance to make sure Santa has the list just right.

Dolls, Legos, Fortnite, no matter what was on the wish list, kids hoped it Santa still had time.
