TUCSON, Ariz - Some retailers in town are making life easier for procrastinator's by keeping their doors open for most of Christmas Eve.

Walmart and Best Buy are among the many big name stores keeping their doors open until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Target stores are going above and beyond by allowing customers to shop until 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

In an attempt to make it even easier for last minute shoppers, most retailers are allowing for people to place an online order and pick-up their order on the same day for free.

With the good amount of folks expected to hit the stores during their final attempt to get their Christmas shopping done, parking lot safety is always something to keep in mind.

Below are a few ways to stay safe in parking lots during busy times.

  • Park under a well lit area
  • Hold or carry small children to the car
  • Place shopping bags in your trunk
  • Look both ways before crossing lots
