Stores Busy After Christmas

Posted: Updated:

 

From spending gift cards to exchanging those Christmas gifts that didn't fit...the day after Christmas is one of the busiest days for Retail Stores.

This is what Herberger's looked like this afternoon.
Busy, but not as busy as some years due to Christmas landing in the middle of the work week.
Manager Mike Lund says they always make sure to have extra staff on hand, because of the numerous purchases that will be made with gift cards.

(Mike Lund / Bismarck Herberger's Store Manager) "We don't see too many exchanges, those flow in later on. This day really is people looking for bargains. And they are here to shop the good deals we have and what is left over. They buy Christmas decorations for next year, candy is always a closeout. And then a lot of gift cards. We had really good gift card sales through the holiday season and so it's way better than last year and I anticipate a good January because of that."

Lisa with Barnes and Noble in Bismarck says they also have extra staff working this week.
She says not only is today busy, but the entire week after Christmas.
She says the holiday and kids not in school have a lot of people out shopping.

(Lisa Rask / Bismarck Barnes and Noble Manager)"This is our highest return season of the year, but we sell a huge amount, 25-30% of our sales in December are in gift cards. And those come back and usually people even spend a little more than what the gift card is worth. It's  busy and we have to make sure our shelves are stacked with lots of stuff for people to buy."


Rask says the Nook HD plus was one of their hottest selling items this Christmas Season.
