Holiday shopping started earlier than ever this year with lots of stores opening Thanksgiving Day, but it's not over yet – more hours are being stuffed in just before Christmas.

Kohl's will stay open for 100 hours until Christmas Eve at 6 p.m., and Toys R Us will stay open for 87 hours until Christmas Eve at 9 p.m.

"That definitely is... different but I definitely would take advantage of that and go," shopper Bethany Figueroa said.

Toys R Us started the 24-hour trend last year. It's a way to fit in shoppers with tight schedules. They also want to minimize crowding during peak shopping hours.

It's not for everyone, but for night owls, early birds and procrastinators, it's a gift.

"That would definitely be something I'd take advantage of," one shopper said.
