SACRAMENTO, CA - For those who forgot to grab some last-minute items for Christmas dinner, a few grocery stores in Sacramento were there to save the day.
Save Mart on Folsom Boulevard was one of the stores open for much of the day Tuesday. It's something they've been doing for the last eight years.
Shoppers like Nance Hauschlidt was very thankful to find an open store.
"Well, I planned my whole dinner, but I forgot the appetizers," Hauschlidt said. "And now, I have extra people coming, so the more food, the merrier!"
Others were scrambling because they put off their shopping until the last second.
"The very last second," shopper Paulianna Hakala said. "All the stores are closed! I had to Google to find this store open."
Not everyone out-and-about Christmas Day was shopping last-minute.
Some national chain restaurants, like McDonalds and Starbucks, were open also; Walgreens' pharmacy doors were open too.
