Stores staying open for last minute shoppers

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Several major retailers will keep their doors open on Christmas Eve, trying to accommodate last minute shoppers.

In Lexington, Toys R' Us will stay open until 9:00, while Kohl's closes at 6:00, and Kmart will keep its doors open until 10:00 tonight.

Fayette Mall opened at 6:00 Tuesday morning and will close at 6:00 p.m.

Retailers are hoping for a last-minute change of heart today by frugal holiday shoppers. The holiday season started strong but has tailed off the past three weeks. ShopperTrak says sales at U.S. stores dropped 3.1 percent to $42.7 billion for the week that ended on Sunday compared to the same period last year.
