Charlottesville Shoppers Discuss Post-Christmas Gift Returns, Sales

Tuesday wasn't only about returning unwanted gifts.

It's the day after Christmas, but the holiday shopping is far from over. I think the mall will be busy especially all week with no school.

Jared Miller of Famous Footwear at the mall predicted that the amount of business following the Christmas season "would be slow for us" and that many stores continue to be affected by online shopping both before and after the holidays. Shoppers are searching for after-Christmas bargains and returning those gifts that weren't quite right.

"We really didn't realize how busy we were going to be during the Christmas season", said Richard.

It markes one of the biggest days for exchanges and returns. "The sales are always great", Jules Portnoy said.

Jasmine Garcia, 21, of Aurora, and her sister Sophia, 11, were likewise on a shopping trip with a non-specific agenda.


"A lot of the stores, anything Christmasy they have like 50 percent off and stuff like that".

For shoppers who want to wait out the post-Christmas crowds, many retailers have sales going on until the new year. "It's just the a year ago we're going to use those specific strands of lights". Others headed out to the stores early to beat the crowds. "It's a good time to be out", said Waterbury resident Abby Desocio.

A report published Tuesday from credit card company Mastercard that tracked spending (across all payment types, including cash and check) from November 1 through December 24 showed that holiday sales increased 4.9 percent this year - the largest year-over-year increase since 2011.

"The kids had money and gift cards that they had to spend today", Blizzard said, joking that the money was "burning a hole in their pockets".

"It's been a real good experience", she said.
