Christmas is over, but stores are still seeing a rush of customers. Many are shopping for post-Christmas deals.
"We had a lot of customers here, first thing this morning, anxious to take advantage of the holiday sale. All of our Christmas items are 50 percent off," Anne Marie Kelley of Caroline & Company said.
The locally-owned Lafayette gift shop is still busy after Christmas. While the store is wrapping some late Christmas gifts, they're also seeing some Christmas returns.
"I don't think I'm going to do too many return, but maybe one or two," customer Evelyn Casarrubias said.
Casarrubias plans on making a few returns. She's not the only one. According to Optoro, which is a tech company that specializes in returns, consumers will return about $90 billion worth of goods this holiday season.
"If they did not like it, I always give them the gift receipt," Casarrubias said. "They can get whatever they want with that credit. I wouldn't take offense because everyone has different taste."
Kelley explained how the store handles returns. "Locally-owned businesses typically have a different return policy from big box stores. They have 10 days with their receipt to get their money back after 10 days to get store credit. If it's a gift that they'd like to switch out or get a gift card, they can do that as well."
