Shoppers Keep Shopping After Christmas

Christmas is behind us, but retailers are making one last push for holiday revenue as shoppers head to stores to return unwanted gifts.

Christmas is behind us, but retailers are making one last push for holiday revenue as shoppers head to stores to return unwanted gifts.

Folks are back at stores, now that their presents are unwrapped.

Best Buy says most customers headed to their store to return or exchange items, while others came in to buy accessories for the gadgets Santa brought them.

At Target returns kept the customer service desk busy, but store officials say folks came to spend more money as well.

We have a lot more people shopping, spending their gift cards, doing a lot more buying then they are returning.” said Target Manager Kerry Beaver.

And deep discounts had customers buying up all the things folks deck the halls with, even after the holiday.

It's all stuff for Christmas. Even though it's the day after Christmas, everything is on sale, it's 50% off, so you feel kind of stupid buying things prior to Christmas when it's going to be half off right afterward, so just preparing for next year,” said Ryan Reed, a Target shopper.

Shoppers like Ryan Reed prove it's never too early to get ready for next year.

We were open at seven this morning had several people outside waiting to buy some of our after Christmas specials so really busy day today so far,” said Beaver.

Knowing the crowds are out, the Better Business Bureau suggest you check a store's return policy before you head out.

Many retailers are restrictive about returns without a receipt and some even change their policies during the holiday season.
