GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - We have all been there its just a few days to Christmas and we still have a few gifts to buy. Fortunately some small businesses at the Conestoga Mall are helping their customers with those last minute gifts.

One small business I visited was Aundrea’s Boutique, they sells clothes and accessories for both boys and girls.

What is most interesting for them is they have only been in brick and mortar setting for a matter of weeks.

But owner of the store, Laura Aguilar, said they started out on as an e-commerce company before they moved into their space at the mall.

But the store is a family affair even the name of the store comes from Aguilar’s daughter.

“We started our business on Facebook about four and a half years ago and we do children’s clothing and accessories and what not and so we finally had to opportunity to come into a store front we decided to give it a shot,” Aguilar said.

But Aundrea’s Boutique isn’t the only small business helping procrastinators with finishing up their Christmas shopping. KO Deals is another small business helping people get those final Christmas goodies.

I anticipate a lot of people coming in to get that last minute gift. We should see a decent amount of people just coming in and wrap up their year,” KO Deals Owner, Guy Skodmin said.

Both businesses expect their stores to be busy going into Christmas week.
