Greg Romero and his fiancé, Desiree, were among those who braved the crowds for some last minute Christmas shopping.
“It’s kind of hectic really,” Desiree said. “Santa’s running a little late.”
While many shoppers told us they did not have time to talk; the couple was full of laughter.
“[Christmas is] the one day of the year people don’t fight so much,” she added with a laugh.
