HIDALGO COUNTY - Monday was the busiest day of year for Christmas gift returns and so with gifts in hand shoppers went looking for what they really wanted.
Shoppers also took advantage of some big time sales with many stores offering 50 to 80 percent off of merchandise. Retailers say this is the best time for shoppers to use those gift cards they received as gifts on Christmas Day. Best Buy Store Manager Joe Cuevas said, "The customers are out there shopping, their looking for bargains, definitely before the Holiday and after the Holiday's theres a lot of bargains, a great opportunity is gift cards. We got a lot of gift cards where a customer doesn't know exactly what to get their family member, we recommend gift cards. So really all this week and next couple weeks, that's really what's gonna come in here."
