SALISBURY, Md.- For many stores the day after Christmas is one of the busiest days of the year. That was certainly the case in Salisbury on Wednesday.

WBOC caught up with a few people who were out returning and exchanging their gifts and even taking advantage of markdowns one day after the holiday.

While many retailers were hoping for high post holiday sales, customers like Adam Troyer had to bring back their gifts. 

"I am here to return a shirt that was a little too big for me," said Troyer, who was visiting from Greenwood, Del. "My little sister got it for me. It just didn't fit."

Some other shoppers like Savannah Chamberlain said they liked their gift but wanted a different version instead.

"I got a North Face jacket for Christmas and I got a bright pink one so I figured I already have a bright pink jacket," Chamberlain said. "So I figured I'd get a different one in a different color that'll suit me better and wear it more often."

"You have got to come out after Christmas for perhaps something you've had your eye on and it's on sale, so you want to snag it before it's gone," said Savannah's mother, Mary Chamberlain.
Corey Lewis of Georgetown, Del., and Warren Decker of Salisbury were two dads who waited patiently and comfortably on the mall's coin massage chairs while their families shopped away with their holiday money.

"Got them gift cards," said Lewis about his two daughters. "Then they can go anywhere, just get them a Visa or a MasterCard and let them go."

"I am here with my mother-in-law who's in the United States for the first time in her life," Decker said, "so I figured the mall is kind of the quintessential American experience that I wanted her to see."
 
The mall's management staff said the mall opened bright and early at 7 a.m. on Wednesday.
Opening it that early is typical for the day after Christmas, they noted.
