There’s only five more days before Christmas and shoppers are flooding the stores for last minute gift ideas.Some stores will be working around the clock to help shoppers on their mission.

Khol’s opened at 6 a.m. this morning and will stay open non-stop until Christmas Eve at 6 p.m. in an effort to boost their bottom line.

Toys R’ Us will open on Saturday morning at 6 and they will close at 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

“That's crazy. I used to work retail. That's insane,” says Missy L’ Hoste, a shopper.

Shoppers are familiar with the late night hours on Black Friday, but in recent years, stores like Kohl’s and Toys R' Us have been opening Thanksgiving Day and now 24-7 leading up to the big delivery from Santa.
