Small businesses in the Tennessee Valley last-minute shoppers hustle and bustle their way through their shops Christmas Eve.

Stores in Downtown Florence opened for the day, giving people one last chance to check loved ones off their lists. Employees said the busy stores are a welcomed sight this time of year.

"There have been a lot of last-minute shoppers, a lot of people who are looking for small gifts for people who don't know people very well. They don't know their sizes and we have a lot of things for people like that," said Nancy Carol-Bryant of LuLu's Clothing.

Small businesses like LuLu's can provide a more personalized service to help shoppers find the special gift they are looking for, whether during the holidays or throughout the year.

Most stores will begin to close Tuesday between 5 and 6 p.m. Call your favorite local retailer to verify their hours.
