JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Businesses all over Region 8 are preparing for the final weekend before Christmas.

"We've done a lot of mark downs getting ready for Christmas. We still have lots of toys in stock," said Toy Castle Manager, Nathan Mckelvey.

J Christopher Toys and Toy Castle are both a child's dream store. With unique toys they can cater to all types of children.

 

"We're defiantly more specialty toys. We have a lot of the toys you won't find at Wal-Mart and Target. We carry a lot of educational toys and a lot of toys that are active," said Mckelvey.

 

 Owner of J Christopher Toys, Mary Horne, loves to help her customers find the perfect gift.

 

"It's so fun when people come in here and we show them things and they literally clap with excitement," said Horne.

 

If you're in a rush and need to get in and get out, they've got it all planned to make your shopping experience a quick and helpful one.

 

"We make sure we got all our toys stored up front, neatly stacked and easy for the customers to get to," said Mckelvey.

 

The weekend may end up being a game of beat the clock but both stores are staying open later to accommodate to their customers.

 

"We open from 9:30am to 6:00pm but it's pretty much until the last customer leaves," said Horne.
