VIDEO: Festive Shopping Frenzy in Ballymena

Waiting for Video...

The last minute Christmas retail rush came early in Ballymena on Monday, December 23, with shoppers forming queues at car parks and outside shops from first light.

Butchers, greengrocers, supermarkets and other outlets selling fresh produce witnessed the biggest crowds as people arrived in huge numbers in the town to stock up with groceries for December 25.

And as in previous years, Christmas Eve looks set to be a mirror image of the early morning scenes on Monday as others flock to the town centre to finally wrap up their Christmas shopping.
