After-Christmas Shoppers Head To Malls For Returns, Exchanges, Deals

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- With Christmas Day behind us and the gift giving complete, there is no longer a need to shop, right? Wrong.

The Mall at Robinson was full on Friday with shoppers who had their second wind.

So where will you find the best buys and the biggest discounts?

That would be clothing.

According to Mary Ann Jones, the manager at JCPenney, anything cold weather or Christmas apparel is anywhere from 70 to 80 percent off.

Chris Bridges, of Crafton Heights, knew where to find those deals, and there was no slowing her down.

"Yes, apparel and shoes... boots, boots, boots," said Bridges.

It's a tradition as old as Christmas itself.

And you thought your holiday shopping was finished.... not so fast. Don't forget about the after-Christmas sales and the returns.

Best buds, Aaron Bryant of McKeesport and Ryan Abbott, of Burgettstown, know how to spot a bargain together.

"PacSun's has mix and match. You can get a jacket and you can match with a pair of pants for free," said Bryant.

"Found a lot of good deals back in the Dick's area - big clearance rack upstairs," Abbott added.

Stores are seeing a lot of returns, but most customers are spending where they return, sometimes a lot more. It's a win-win for all involved.

And you can't go wrong with sale signs pointing you in the right direction with the perfect mark down.
