There are a number of day after Christmas sales for those willing to brave the crowds at major retailers this year, starting Dec. 26, 2010.
After Christmas sales for 2010 can be found at Walmart, Best Buy, Sears, Target, Kmart and elsewhere (scroll down for the best deals). In addition to those bargain-hunting, there will also be many trying to return gifts.
The National Retail Federation's Scott Krugman says Dec. 26 should "pad the numbers of [an already] successful holiday season" for retailers; since this year's day after Christmas falls on a Sunday, it could be more crowded than normal.
ABC News reports that this year's Christmas season is expected to surpass the last few years, with Americans spending a predicted $451.5 billion, up 3.3 percent from last year.
The bargains on Sunday will be numerous, as "Atlanta Bargain Hunter" Lauren Davidson notes:
Dec. 26 is the day my frugal family stocks up on everything from blenders to clothes to gifts for next year. My father (who has purchased any electronics prior to Christmas and is done shopping for the year) stays at home while my mother, sister and I load up at 6 a.m., coffee cups in hand, and head to the outlet malls.
