Thousands Head to Local Stores for Returns, Savings

Posted: Updated:

'Twas the Day After Christmas' and all through the streets were thousands of shoppers returning their gifts. The rush is on, to the exchange counter, and for those post-Christmas bargains. There are dozens of reasons the shoppers head to the stores.

"I am a shopaholic. My name is Jennifer and I do shop entirely to much. My husband is not here to testify to that and therefore, I have his credit cards," Jennifer Anderson said.

Anderson and her two kids braved the stores to make a few returns, which seems to go quickly.

"It was about two minutes, it was really, really fast. I was very surprised. I was in and out faster than I could have expected and this is the second store I was at today that was like that," Anderson said.

Anderson suggests you get to the stores as early as you can because after 11:30 a.m. she noticed they got much busier. If Santa or your family made a small mistake on size or item, stores are ready with full staffs to help make a return or exchange.

"Usually most customers realize that they have more than just today to do the returns. They have sometimes up to 30 days to do returns. So, a lot of people are waiting to do them a little bit later when their lines die down," Target Store Team Leader Brian Dausses said.

Dausses said Target at Tulsa Hills has been busy all day and he offers two bites of advice to make your after-Christmas shopping stress free.

"Bring your shopping bag because just about every retailer has some great sales on for the next couple of days and more than anything else, if they do have a return bring a little patience most retailers will get you through very quickly and take care of your just have a little patience and they will take care of you," Dausses said.

If you did get several gift cards this holiday season, Dausses said you can use those through out the year if you don't want to brave the crowds. Another good tip to make things go quicker is to have your receipt ready with your item. If you don't have your receipt, expect your return to take a little longer.
