Some shoppers look forward to the day after Christmas sales, while others cannot handle the crowds.
Linda Woods flew down from Detroit on Saturday to spend time with her cousin Tonya Bridges in West Point for the holidays. They began their after Christmas shopping by partaking in Belk’s up to 75 percent off sale.
“I go shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but shopping the day after Christmas always has the greater discounts,” said Bridges. “Mostly everything will be 75 percent off, and you’re almost paying zero for it.”
“Shopping after Christmas is also a good time to to get all holiday decorations for next year. Christmas lights, cards are normally marked down a lot,” said Woods.
A former LaGrange resident who is in town for the holidays, Clint Blazer, merely shops the day after Christmas to use up his gift cards and money that he receives for gifts.
“I always receive gifts cards and cash for Christmas,” said Blazer. “And I work a lot and I don’t know what people want, so I just get them gift cards because they’re easier to get.”
On the other hand, Susan Cartwright, a LaGrange resident, does not engage in shopping after Christmas. The only thing she wishes to do is make her returns and exchanges as quickly as possible and get out. She received a new printer from her son as a gift, but wanted to exchange it for a different brand at Walmart.
“I don’t plan on doing any shopping. I just want to get in and exchange my printer and get home. It’s way too crowded to even do anything in here,” said Cartwright.
