Marble Hill residents and storeowners brace for the last minute holiday shoppers

Marble Hill residents got an early start, or late start, depending on how you look at it, on their holiday shopping. They lined up as early as 7am to get last-minute Christmas gifts.

The shoppers said they expected empty shelves and long lines at area stores, but said they found the contrary. Store owners made sure they kept the shelves stocked for the last-minute shoppers.

Local store owners say Fridays turnout wraps up a successful holiday shopping season.
