    Christmas shoppers are keeping the cash registers ringing at local businesses and showing individual preferences in selection choices as they cross off their gift lists.

    Some of them even buy gifts at Christmas that most seasonal shoppers might find unusual, according to Denise Fowler, who manages Ace Hardware in Lincoln Plaza.
