Shoppers scramble for last-minute gifts as threat of Omicron variant rises
Many people spent Friday ticking off those last-minute gift items, even with the looming threat of the highly contagious Omicron variant.
Last-minute shoppers were out in full force Friday at the Tanger Outlets in Deer Park, and some were surprised at how crowded it was.
The parking lots were packed, and some stores even had lines to get in.
Masks were required indoors, and all shoppers were asked to add patience to their shopping list.
