FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - "I've done a lot online, but today I did some running around to get some last minute things," Penny Cook said.

Penny is one of many who's getting those last few items on the shopping list.

After being lucky yesterday, beating the Super Saturday crowd, she's out again.

"We're doing pet stuff, so maybe people don't need as much as they do at the regular stores. We're going to pick up some groceries and then we're done," she said.

Jill Wright said she'll be out all day.

"Today hasn't been too bad. I'm surprised," Wright said.

Yesterday wasn't as smooth for her with the traffic and few angry people.

She said part of what makes it an easier shopping experience is patience.

"Just be patient. Everybody already has their things to do. I think the biggest thing to remember when I think about last minute people, some people don't have money until the tail end, or they're waiting to see what their budgets look like, so be patient with everyone," Wright added.
