If you plan to wrap up your holiday shopping this weekend, you might want to give yourself some extra time to brave the crowds.

Tomorrow is the busiest shopping day of the year.

Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the holiday season, but the Saturday before Christmas is traditionally the busiest.

Stores at the Columbia Center Mall in Kennewick are getting ready for the holiday rush.

Employees expect the mall to be packed all weekend.

"I think it's Black Friday, but more. I think Black Friday, people come in and get the deals, almost more often for themselves. And now, for Saturday, I read that almost 50% or more of shoppers have not even purchased all of their Christmas gifts" said Patricia Bardin, Columbia Center Mall.

Macy's at the mall opened at 7 AM this morning, and the store will be open for 48 hours straight until 7 AM Sunday.

The Columbia Center Mall will be open from 8 AM  to midnight tomorrow.
