up shop around noon today. check out these photos that governor brian sandoval tweeted out showing snow at the state capitol. he also thanked his groundskeepers and building staff for putting together the state holiday display. hundreds hit the streets today - getting that last minute christmas shopping done! a lot stores close early today - so it's been a race against time for procrastinators. action news reporter michael burton got a front row seat to the chaos this afternoon. he joins us live from town square. rikki - i was expecting chaos - now that we're down to the wire, here - but take a look around. the crowd has been pretty big, but not nearly as big as the crowds on black friday - but remember black friday is for people who want to get ahead of the game. the people i spoke with today are just a little behind.

i think we're doing pretty good." "i've been working double shifts lately so i haven't had time to go shopping." being late isn't the worst thing in the world because...look at all these deals! some stores - 40 percent off of everything. one store - 75 percent off everything. we're reaching the end of the year here. store managers tell me this is the time when the hope to get rid of unsold stock. so the larger items like tv's may not be half off like on black friday - but consumers, today, enjoyed somewhat similar deals - without all those lines. "i feel like i get just as good of a deal on the day before christmas than i do on black friday." alright, you heard her say it...some of the deals are just as good as black friday. but i'm told some of them are a little beter. we'll tell you why - coming up at 6. reporting live from town square - michael burton - channel 13
