Even though many people unwrapped mounds of Christmas presents over the past two days, the mall and other stores were full of shoppers Wednesday.
The day after Christmas is typically one of the busiest shopping days of the year—some people say it even challenges Black Friday crowd levels.
People are returning or exchanging some gifts, spending their gift cards or just using some Christmas cash.
Retailers are well aware of the rush of shoppers they will see the day after Christmas and are offering extended hours, door buster deals and other discounts to bring that last bit of Christmas cash to their stores.
Even though its crowded, shoppers say they want to take care of those gift cards and exchanges right away, before they forget about it or lose their receipt.
"I'm exchanging some headphones for a different color for my son," said Greg Berg.
Other shoppers were out with their kids spending Christmas money and enjoying the last few days of their break from school and work.
"They couldn't wait another day, they had to do it today," said Mom and Aunt Beth Thornton, escorting her daughter and nieces through Target.
A lot of shoppers are still looking for Christmas gifts as many families will still be getting together to celebrate Christmas this weekend.
In the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, the day after Christmas is a National Holiday known as Boxing Day. Shopping in those countries on Boxing Day is a lot like Black Friday here in the U.S.
