FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Last-minute Christmas shopping looked a lot different Christmas Eve from just a year ago.
Shelly Godfroy picked up an air fryer from Best Buy's Curbside service on Thursday.
It's the best time she used the service, and better yet it arrived quicker than she expected.
“I just got the notice, I thought it was gonna be the day after Christmas so I was delighted that it got here early and ... smooth," Godfroy said.
It was one of many ways she and others could get their shopping done while social distancing.
“I think the biggest thing is, ‘take a breath,’ we’re dealing with something that’s never happened.”
Mandy Kriegel said she was making up for lost time after staying home on Black Friday. Her children want a Nintendo Switch and a Playstation.
“They’ve been just begging and begging and I agreed to get the switch and my oldest was like, ‘I want the PlayStation.’ She didn’t want the Switch so I gave in and this year I got it for her.”
Leticia Webb says the hunt for her children's Christmas gifts has been longer this year.
“Everything’s closing sooner. So it’s just kind of stressful to get in and out of places, to keep going for the stuff that we need."
She went to three different Walmarts to find gifts for her youngest daughter, only to fine slower lines and empty shelves.
“Like the checkouts and stuff like that...everybody rightfully keep your distance, but it’s been a lot slower to get through the lines.”
Regardless, Webb said it's worth it to spread Christmas joy.
“Just everyone to be happy and healthy, and everyone to be with their loved ones tomorrow.”
