Stores expect big crowds after Christmas

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Boxing Day is one of the biggest day for returns. Many retailers prepare for it with extra staff on hand, ready for the crowds with all those gifts they didn't quite like.

According to data from Shoppertrack, the day after Christmas is predicted to be the fifth largest day when it comes to holiday crowds. Some will be, of course, looking for those post-Christmas sales.

Online returns are also expected to be big this year, as more and more people did their shopping with their fingertips. Now, any returns need to be shipped back.

One more thing that will draw big holiday shopping crowds are gift cards. Many people who received them as gifts tend to spend them as early as possible.

To entice them, a lot of retailers continue to offer sales and extended store hours.
