Holiday Shopping Continues for Retailers After Christmas

Posted: Updated:

Just a day and a half of quiet is all the retail store cashiers got before they hit the ground running again.

Holiday shopping continues for retailers as Christmas kicked off seasonal clearance.

"We mark things down on Christmas Eve. We spend a lot of time marking product down. Running a sale today to get that clearance customer to come in- that bargain shopper," says J.C. Penney Store Leader Brian Kinsey.

They're clearing out seasonal items like sweaters and coats because believe it or not, spring is blooming in the stores.

"And in some cases our summer stuff. We have swim wear already in our store so we have to make room for that," he says.

And stores were serious about sales: 40, 50, even 70 percent off. Bringing out droves of bargain shoppers.

"I feel like sales after Christmas are what the prices maybe should be in the stores. So that's why we like to come get the sales instead of buying full price," says bargain shopper Hannah Yexley.

But that isn't the only reason why. Some say it's also a perfect time to use that new gifted plastic.

"I just kind of wanted to see all the people at the mall, kind of the hustle and bustle of the after holidays and yeah, I am spending my gift cards as well," says shopper Rachel Kennedy.

Or to exchange a gift that wasn't quite right.

"I am returning some Christmas gifts and getting different sizes and different colors and I'm also looking to see if I can find a good sale again," says shopper Mara Solberg.

Some don't even care about the sales and merchandise, they're just coming out to for a change of scenery from the office.

"It's great having a day off and to be able to spend it with family and get out and do some things we typically don't get a chance to do with our busy lives," says shopper Steve Schons.
