Shoppers Enjoy Post-Christmas Deals
Christmas might be over, but the after-Christmas deals have just begun.
Maria Wood and her son Samuel are returning gifts and hunting for deals.
"Anything. Clothes, shoes, whatever, whatever we see that we like. Maybe some things we didn't get."
Wood is not alone. Many customers say they were hoping to save big bucks with steep discounts.
"Just trying to hit the deals, any sales that are going on in the mall," Lizette Martinez said.
"I'm looking for after-Christmas deals," said Miriam Borrego, "maybe some clothing, some kids' stuff."
People aren't just shopping at stores. There are also plenty of great after-Christmas deals online.
Dan Cotton is the manager at JC Penney in Watertown. He says while there are many deals in the store, there are some discounts you can only get on the company's website.
"Sometimes they send out texts to our customers to let them know specials are going on or events going on within even just dot com," he said.
That gives shoppers like Maria Wood even more options, although she does enjoys checking out the deals in person.
