It's not uncommon for people to procrastinate on their holiday shopping and wait until the final days to buy gifts for their friends and families.
Luckily for DeKalb residents, a few shopping malls will welcome them with open arms on Christmas Eve.
The Mall at Stonecrest, located at 2929 Turner Hill Road in Lithonia, will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Perimeter Mall, located at 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody, will also be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Gallery at South DeKalb, located at 2801 Candler Road in Decatur, will extend their hours from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
North DeKalb Mall, located at 2050 Lawrenceville Highway in Decatur, will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Not only can shoppers get some last-minute shopping in, but families can have their photos taken with Santa himself before he heads out to deliver toys on Christmas Eve.
What about the day after Christmas when people need to return or exchange gifts? Malls will resume their normal hours on Dec. 26.
