“Each week, each day, I do better than the same day of the previous week until going up to Christmas”.
Monday’s warmer weather attracted hundreds of shoppers to Richland Mall for after-Christmas sales and returns. “We’ve found good sales on slippers, that’s a biggie, and pajamas, and there’s still a lot of merchandise available. As the customers come in, it’s the last-minute items they’re looking for”.
“Very nice cook set, lifetime warranty, yeah very exciting I love to cook”. For example, JC Penney at Magnolia Mall opened at 6 a.m.so customers could find what may have been omitted from their Christmas wish lists.
About a third of those polled didn’t plan on shopping post-Christmas.
“I’ve seen several stores packed with people”, said Erik Vint of Barboursville.
According to the National Retail Federation, one in three people will return or exchange something after Christmas.
Pandora had a line out the door, Bath and Body works was filled with people getting a whiff of what 75 percent off smells like and the 50 percent off Christmas decor in Target had people filling their carriages.
“As you can tell, we’re trying to contribute to the economy”, Hampton smiled, looking down at the bags he was carrying.
Keep in mind, many retailers have deadlines for returns, and you don’t want to wait a month to find out you can’t make any returns or exchanges. While Tatiana Taylor was thrilled with the deep discounts, she was quickly losing steam.
Ms Salwa, who went shopping in Orchard Road and at Nex, said she bought clothes at Zara at half the usual price.
The Smith family, though, was taking it all in stride. “I don’t know if it has expired or not, I will probably never use it either”, said Kent.
“And lots of patience”. “We always come. We got $144 worth of stuff for $23”.
She says there were some great deals on holiday decor.
She added that more people from out of town had been shopping at the store this year. “I got cologne for my husband’s birthday that was 40 percent off”, she said.
