What’s a holiday without last-minute shopping? The Micronesia Mall was full of shoppers, going in and out of different stores with bags in hand.

PNC spoke to John who said that shopping post-pandemic has been normal, saying he could breathe much easier. He shared some of his purchases with us.

“I got a plushie, I don’t know–maybe I got tricked into buying this. So it’s a gift. And I got this because my old case was childish. I got like an anime case. It’s pretty cool you know.”

Another shopper, Everest who just finished last-minute shopping for toys shared his holiday shopping experience with us, “It’s very great. I really liked it.”

Finally, PNC caught up with Micronesia Mall employee, Patrick who shared that he finished his shopping because he started early, “I got my girlfriend a knife. I got my son rims for his car and my other son’s a fireman, he wanted boots and stuff like that, so basics. Clothes, everyone wants shoes.”

Christmas is just two days away, so if you haven’t done so already, get your shopping in.
