Shoppers Hunting For After Christmas Sales

The Christmas holiday is officially over, meaning that stores have merchandise that has to go. The translation? A day after Christmas sales extravaganza.

They came as early as 6 a.m. to take advantage of the massive day after Christmas savings, which was heaven for some but terrible for others.

With savings up to 60 percent off stores have geared up for the onslaught which will last for the next week or so.

While national sales projections for Christmas fell a bit short, retailers say gift card redemption will most likely make up the difference.

Because the days following Christmas are weekdays, retailers are expecting the largest crowds this weekend.
