Happy returns: Shoppers head to stores during busiest day for returns

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

As the gift giving season ends, people headed to the stores to return their less than perfect presents.

The day after Christmas is considered the busiest day for returns.

The Mall at Bay Plaza saw a steady stream of residents since it opened at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The mall was closed Tuesday during Christmas Day.

Many shoppers say they've brought bags of items to be returned while others say they were happy with Santa's choices.

Employees from several stores in the mall say they're keeping extended hours through New Year’s Day, expecting an uptick in shoppers for the rest of 2018.
