CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Thousands of people left home Christmas Eve, hoping for great deals and the perfect gift.

Rain started to come down around lunchtime, but that didn't deter the last-minute shoppers WBTV found.

WBTV talked with shoppers at the Best Buy across from Northlake Mall. Aisles were packed for most of the afternoon.

"Thirty years ago, the day before Christmas it was empty. Now it doesn't seem all that crazy and everybody is in a good mood," said shopper Sue Bartlett.

Bartlett told WBTV she enjoyed shopping the day before Christmas because of the "holiday spirit."

"You have to have a game plan and you have to know what you want and what you need. You can't come out with a general idea, because you'll never find what you need," said shopper Jessica Peifer.
