This weekend marks the busiest time for shoppers to make purchases for Christmas, so the wintry weather could not have come at a worse time if you planned to be on the roads, going store to store.
Many of the shoppers that we caught up with said that the Christmas spirit keeps them going despite the snowy drive out and walk to get inside.
With Christmas just two weekends away, the crowds definitely seemed smaller than expected.
Those that braved the heavy snowfall say that are determined to get the shopping done and out of the way and not wait until the last minute.
For those who have yet to secure their Christmas purchases, the deadline is quickly approaching and time is ticking.
Since Ohioans are used to dealing with cold and snowy weather, most won't be offering any passes for the "bad weather excuse."
