EDISON - If you haven't wrapped up your last-minute Christmas shopping, you've got only a few hours left.

Many stores and malls are closing at around 6 or 7 p.m., and some toy stores are staying open until 10.

Shoppers across the Garden State have been hitting the malls and stores early today trying to nag those last-minute holiday gifts.

It's recommended that shoppers call ahead to check on store holiday hours and to make sure that the items they're looking for are still in stock.
