After-Christmas sales- shoppers filling the stores, looking for bargains

A store in the St. Johns Town Center advertises a post Christmas sale

Elissa Shumate, of Martinez, was shopping at the Bath and Body Works store in Sunvalley, where she came to use a gift card and make returns at other stores.

Duchacek is nearly a year ahead of schedule, as she was shopping the day after Christmas 2017.

The day after Christmas is typically busy with shoppers taking advantage of store discounts. She "hates shopping", she said, so instead of navigating the stores before the holidays, she bought gift cards for her kids that they can use this week to shop the sales for things they need, like a new suit for her son's internship. "People are where they are going to go I think, and it's not bad".

Expert say you should avoid buying clothes for people because it's easy to get the wrong size, color, brand, or style.

A good chunk of those returns take place the day after Christmas.

"They have great sales in there", she said in the store parking lot after moving her goods from her cart to her vehicle. She told First Coast News she and her mom shop at the Town Center frequently, so she knows how the bargains after Christmas stack up to regular sales.

"We did have those early bird customers this morning looking for that after Christmas special deal especially on our Christmas and holiday decorations", Lauck said. "It's just the previous year we're going to use those specific strands of lights".

Some of the stores like Kohls, Dick's Sporting Goods and Old Navy extended their holiday hours and opened early again today.

Most sales at Renaissance range from 50 percent to 75 percent off. NY and Company advertised up to 80 percent off on "everything".

"We got a lot of money for Christmas", shopper Angelica Davis said.

Florence resident Becky Barrier said having four children has made her become a smart and experienced shopper.
