On Sunday, Mother's Day arrived with a few last minute shoppers scrambling to find something for their moms.
"They come in with a frantic look like do you have this or do you have that. So you can tell they are definitely coming in and shopping for mom," said Tynesha Smith, with Target.
Jewelry, accessories, and even electronics were in demand gift items on the lists of moms this year.
"I bought her a CD player and a stereo that she wanted, so she can listen to music in her room," said Jose Blanco.
A gift for mom isn't complete without a card letting her know how you feel.
"It's a special day for mom so you got to let them know how much you appreciate them and how much they mean to you," said Kevin Bennett.
Bennett and dozens of other procrastinating customers hit the flower market on Main St. near downtown. Florists were busy creating floral arrangements as customers waited in line for their purchases.
"They're safe, you can't go wrong with flowers," said Katherine Blanco.
And for those who completely forgot, moms like phone calls too.
