Shoppers flock to Bay Plaza for last-minute gifts

Shoppers flocked to the Mall at Bay Plaza Thursday to pick up last-minute gifts.



Long lines could be seen at most of the stores in the Bronx shopping center.



Several shoppers said it took them about 20-30 minutes to find a parking spot. 



Many who spoke to News 12 said they did most of their shopping already but needed their last few items.



Families were also at the mall to visit Santa Claus before Christmas. 



Business owners told News 12 that they are doing great this year.
