Posted: Updated:

It's a race against the clock for local UPS driver's like Casey Bolen who are working longer hours combined with extra stops to deliver customers their boxes by Christmas.   

This year, an extra 7,000 boxes are currently in route or have already been delivered throughout the scenic city. that's an 11-percent increase of deliveries compared to last year.

Economist believe, the spike may be the result of shoppers finding better deals online.  They noticed shoppers are buying from sources like EBay and Amazon that end up being cheaper even with a shipping fee.

Over 30,000,000 UPS packages were delivered this 2013. UPS added extra employees, stops their drivers routes and hours to help.
