Post Christmas Shopping

by Jessica Cervantez

Lots of shoppers hit the stores early the day after Christmas.

James Loomer, who was in the Belk Department store, said, "Exchanging, taking back, too small."

We asked him, "What are you exchanging?" He replied, "A leather coat and some shirts, long sleeve shirts."

Monday was the day to return and exchange Christmas gifts.

As Loomer stood in front of the cashier, he said, "This little lady is nice so far. If she gives me my money back, it will be a whole lot better."

But, don't be mistaken, it was also the 10th busiest shopping day of the year.

Melissa Long, who spent the day shopping, said, "I'm looking for bargains, and looking for a sale."

Some shoppers even came out early to get the best deals.

Julie Wilke said, "We got here at 7:00 a.m. and stood in line. It was crazy. It was funny. We weren't looking for anything in particular, just nice to load up a big cart and get off with some good deals."

Wilke even made it to Target twice on Monday.

"My kids have some money to spend, money in their pockets, gift cards. It's burning a hole," she said.

Lots of shoppers found their way to the deals. Store managers say, since this is the busiest return and exchange day of the year, there are things you can do to make it a little easier for them.

Susan Coats, of the Belk Department Store, said, "Try to hang onto their receipts. We gave a lot of gift receipts. It makes it a lot easier."

Shoppers appreciated the good deals, and store managers appreciated the shoppers.
