PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

With just a few days left until Christmas, Amazon is offering help for last-minute shoppers.

On Tuesday for the first time, FOX 12 got a look inside Amazon's Prime Now hub in Portland.

Amazon is calling Tuesday "Procrastinator's Delight Day."

Knowing that many shoppers wait until the very last minute, Amazon said it can help people skip lines at stores so they can spend more time with friends and family.

While on the tour, FOX 12 asked what are popular items for Portlanders to order this year?

"Organic baby carrots, water and spinach are some of the top items that Portlanders are purchasing this year," said Prime Now Spokesperson, Amanda Ip.

The Portland Prime Now hub is full of tens of thousands of items from toys to electronics to groceries.

For Amazon Prime subscribers, items can be ordered through their app, packed up in the Prime Now hub, then delivered to your door up until 11:59 p.m. Christmas Eve.
