Concord Mills mall saw quite a few shoppers wanting to return and exchange items.

"The kids had money and gift cards that they had to spend today", Blizzard said, joking that the money was "burning a hole in their pockets".

The CBRE Group estimates $32 billion in gift merchandise will be returned online and to brick-and-mortar stores, but several shoppers at the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Selinsgrove weren't in the mood to give up any of their gifts.

"We did cards for Christmas and we said after Christmas we're going to get the deals", said Ver and Tim Kleinhenz. "It's not just the dreaded returns". Said, Kasey Burke. "Mine was a gift that didn't fit".

"I have some money to spend, and I think in general the prices are better after the holidays", Jasmine Garcia explained. Then you have to return it.

"We got a lot of money for Christmas", shopper Angelica Davis said.

"I'm so surprised to see such a big crowd here", shopper Tamara Carter said.

"I'm buying for my daughters and their families", she said.




However, not everyone was shopping for bargains, or looking to redeem their gift-cards. "So, everything was good".

Hurtz said they're on the hunt for cute clothes and a specific item for next year.

Those are some of the same things on Danielle Drayton's return items list.

Retail experts are recommending consumers to wait and make their returns the first week of January to avoid long lines. "I'm on vacation, so a little bit of a drive, you know, wasn't too much of a deal".

Local resident Kayla McCain said, "I'm pretty easy to please".

"So she can grow into it. Everything is ideal." She said.

Elissa Shumate, of Martinez, was shopping at the Bath and Body Works store in Sunvalley, where she came to use a gift card and make returns at other stores.

"I think now after the shopping season is over, it's still a little insane".
