Stores Gear up for Post Holiday Crowds


With the holiday season behind us, some stores have started their post holiday sales.

Today (12/26) parking lots were packed as shoppers headed out to find the best bargains.

Many stores have post Christmas sales and Magic Mart in Beckley had all Christmas items 25 percent off. Employees say they’re working to clear their shelves and prepare new inventory for the winter weather.

Before they get their new shipments, they’re having some of their best deals of the year. “We have a large clearance selection because we will get ready for inventory in January, that’s when we’ll have another markdown but right now we have some fantastic buys on our dresses and different things in the store,” said the Department Head of Shoes at Magic Mart in Beckley, Carol Smith.

These sales will last until all items are gone and Magic Mart doesn’t only have Christmas items on sale, but there is a large clearance selection throughout the store.

Also with the post holiday season comes returns. Stores like Magic Mart have already seen some shoppers return gifts.

Although employees say they haven’t seen many returns just yet, they will most likely see crowds toward the end of this week.

Shoppers tell us when heading out to make returns, there are some things they take into consideration. “I mean we usually wait a few days after Christmas because I feel like the day after everyone’s always rushing in,” said a shopper, Mary Wilson.

Some stores do have return policy’s just for the holiday season which is why stores recommend you have some sort of receipt and have all tags on the item.
