Retailers are expected to be busy over the next week with the rush of shoppers using gift cards or returning or exchanging gifts.
According to the National Retail Federation, two-thirds of people plan to shop the week following Christmas. Forty-nine percent said the reason is to take advantage of holiday sales, 27% said to use gift cards and 18% said to return or exchange gifts.
Xavier Rivas and his son Matthew headed into Best Buy at Corbins Corner this morning to make a return. “It’s head phones for gaming,” said Matthew Rivas from Haines City, FL.
“I ordered it online, I got it home and then when we tested it, it was not what I expected,” said Xavier Rivas from Haines City, FL.
While Justin Stone from Plainville had a gift card to spend.
“Probably going to browse the story a little bit and see what I find. Maybe a new set of headphones or something like that,” Stone.
