Shoppers Head Out After Christmas

The day after Christmas, shopping in Tyler was brisk, according to local retailers.  Retailers like Target were crowded with shoppers all hoping to take advantage of after Christmas discounts.

Most Christmas related items are placed on sale following the holiday and retailers say they even reduce the price of other items hoping to attract customers.

Those out shopping in the days after Christmas, say they came prepared with a little planning and a lot of restraint.

"We probably buy a lot that we didn't need but we do save a lot on lights that my dad really needs," said Misty Young.  "We'll just pack them up and save them for next year."

The day after Christmas ranks as the third largest shopping day of the year, behind the day after Thanksgiving and the Saturday prior to Christmas.
