Did you brave the mall for some after Christmas deals? While some people were spending the day returning gifts that weren't quite perfect, a lot of people also headed out to score some post-holiday deals.
Retailers say it's a popular day for people who got gift cards to head out and buy what they didn't get for Christmas and for people to get good deals on things like ornaments and wrapping paper for next year.
News10NBC talked with some shoppers who were at Eastview Mall as soon as the mall opened early Thursday morning.
Kathy Fichtner said, "We did a couple exchanges and we're looking for a couple deals. Lots of good sales going on right now, not too crowded so we're just here looking for deals."
