  • The rush to return gifts begins!

Some shoppers at the Broadway Square Mall called it another "Black Friday".

Despite the heavy traffic and long lines, shoppers say they're happy they're getting what they wanted, even if it's a day late. "We are focused on providing our guests with a dynamic experience during this busy shopping week".

For whatever reason you're heading to the stores Tuesday, expect extended holiday hours at many retailers, large crowds and busy parking lots.

"Exchanges and people want to spend their money and gift cards", said John Provost, Provost Shoes. That beat the 164 million estimated shoppers expected to come during the weekend.

Many took advantage of time off work to sleep in. "From good weather across the country to low unemployment and strong consumer confidence, the climate was right, literally and figuratively, for consumers to tackle their holiday shopping lists online and in stores".

The CBRE Group estimates $32 billion in gift merchandise will be returned online and to brick-and-mortar stores, but several shoppers at the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Selinsgrove weren't in the mood to give up any of their gifts.

Kara Hendey, of Harker Heights, was in Target shopping for grocery items, but first had to make a return.

The better the return policy, the more people will shop, according to the NRF.

Some consumers were not there to return those unwanted presents. "The sales are always great", Jules Portnoy said.

"I think now after the shopping season is over, it's still a little insane". 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. DVDs, software and other electronic items can not be returned once they're opened.
