GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. People are pouring into stores this weekend as the countdown to Christmas morning continues.

Some browsed for a variety of gifts, while others came to stores just to nail down that one last present they couldn't find all season.

"Really truly we couldn’t find this one thing because we have been everywhere. but this finishes it," said Cathy Haller, who had been looking for a Disney Infinity for Xbox 360 until she found one at Best Buy Saturday morning.

It's been a steady season for Best Buy in Grand Junction, which spent months getting the store and the staff ready for the rush, said Jason Leist, the store's general manager.

Shoppers said the store was easier to navigate than they expected with the crowds.

"I was a little apprehensive about coming because I thought it was going to be crazy the last weekend before Christmas, but it wasn't that bad," said shopper Mike Fyscus. "In and out, found what we needed, everything's good."

Best Buy employees don't expect the crowd to let up until after the holidays.

"Tomorrow will be another real busy day for us and then this following week we expect to see a lot of traffic and a lot of people, which is awesome because we have a lot of product and a lot of people here to help," Leist said.
