Shoppers headed to the stores to pick up some last minute gifts.
They were looking for everything from pajamas and gift cards to anything they could find last minute.
Some people postponed their shopping and waited to get started until these last few days before the holiday.
"I just couldn't get motivated," says Janice Swinford from Plover.
The lines stretched out long all day while the cashiers busily checked out customers.
One shopper had a message for all those hitting the stores.
"Merry Christmas everybody," says Emma Becker from Weston.
Some stores are open 24 hours a day through Christmas Eve to help shoppers get all their items on their lists.
