A few reasons for shoppers to be disappointed

Posted:

The mad rush is on to buy last-minute holiday gifts.

Some stores are open 24 hours to help out the procrastinators; but, not all is well in Christmas shopping land.

The nation's biggest electronics retailer, Best Buy, apologized because some of its online orders won't be delivered in time for Christmas.

Also, the release of Nike's new Air Jordan basketball shoes caused a frenzy in stores across the country in the wee hours of Friday morning.

Thousands lined up for hours to get their hands on the prized sneakers.

Rowdy customers broke doors, and some were trampled.             

Another thing wreaking havoc on the holiday season: the weather.

Blizzards out west and severe storms in the south are slowing down some shipping schedules.            

FedEx warns some packages delivered by ground may be delayed.
