GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Christmas is Monday, and if you have some shopping left to do, two major retailers are hoping to draw you in by keeping their doors open around the clock.

 “I think it’s crazy but it’s smart on their part,” said Greenville resident, Faith Castleman.

Kohl’s and Toys “R” Us will stay open 24/7 through Christmas Eve.

“There are a lot of last-minute shoppers and people will see that they’re open so late and they’ll think it’s a good time to go because there’s not any crowds,” said Castleman.

For the 5th year, Kohl’s is offering 24-hour shopping in the days leading up to Christmas.

Toys “R” Us is also giving customers the same shopping convenience. Starting Friday, the toy store giant will stay open for 63 hours straight.

Shoppers say the added hours give them a little more time to get the gifts they are searching for.

“I’m definitely a procrastinator, but I’m also a bit of a perfectionist,” said shopper Jake Baker. “I want to make sure I get the right gift and that it has some thought to it.”

The two retailers might be onto something. According to the National Retail Federation, many holiday shoppers are waiting longer to start shopping this year.

“Even though many consumers got a head start with holiday shopping early in the season, millions more are leaving their gift buying to the last minute and beyond,” said Matthew Shay, President and CEO of the National Retail Federation.

Shoppers say the extra hours gives them more time to buy for the ones they love.

Kohl’s opened their doors at 7 a.m. on Thursday morning and will stay open around the clock until 6 p.m. Christmas Eve.

Toys “R” Us will open at 6 a.m. Friday morning and stay open until 9 p.m. the night before Christmas.
