The day after Christmas means returns and sales for retail stores

The rush to return gifts begins! Stores Hope for Post-Holiday Shopping Rush
Elsie Buchanan | 27 December, 2017, 04:18

While some shoppers say they are making returns, others say they're more focused on the post-holiday sales.

"It starts all over again because once the season ends, you have to plan for the rest of the year and now you're starting 2018 so now we're planning our year".

The two days following Christmas are two of the busiest days of the year for retailers. Both the Bay Street outdoor mall in Emeryville and Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton advertised hours from 7 a.m.to 10 p.m. on their websites.

The continued push comes as retailers saw record spending starting in early November - but a lot shifted online.

Some have dubbed the day after Christmas - the annual return-a-thon. "It's a good time to be out", said Waterbury resident Abby Desocio. He added that he doesn't normally shop the day after Christmas and was at the mall because he had the day off.

Experts estimate about 10 million Americans head back to retail stores to return approximately 90 billion dollars' worth of holiday presents.

Hurtz said they're on the hunt for cute clothes and a specific item for next year.

Many people were at Getz's in Marquette today.

"Consumers now demand a generous return policy".

Neither returned anything, but both clutched bags with new purchases.

Other consumers were hoping that the cold weather would thin the crowds.

The biggest spenders this holiday season were older millennials - 25 to 34 years old - at $419.52.

"You would think that they would just get you stuff that you wanted; so no returns".

Another shopper said she got plenty of gifts cards as Christmas gifts but she's saving them.

Ray Ristich, who manages the Zales jewelry store at Fox Valley Mall, said sales during "the lead-up to Christmas were great". These Black Friday-like sales brought in many customers, but they weren't the only reason the crowds came through. "It stays busy after that".

It's one thing for people to return items.
