For many Mexican shoppers it is an annual tradition to cross the border for all their holiday shopping needs. 

The Mexican shopper is still a vital part of the Nogales and Pima County economy, contributing millions of dollars. 

Some shoppers say their parents used to bring them along shopping and now that they're older its what they do with their families. 

Other people who crossed from Mexico say it would be ideal if they could get all their shopping done without having to cross the border at all. They say one of the main reasons they do cross is because stores across the border provide a greater variety and quality.
