About 5 percent of people will wait until after Christmas to do their holiday shopping this year, compared to 6 percent who were expected to wait until December 24, according to a study from the National Retail Federation.

"It's a carryover to the spirit of giving, and I think you not only give material things, but to give more of yourself during the Christmas season", Logsdon said.

It's the day after Christmas and for many people it's a day to hit the stores.

"We're just spending the gift cards we got for Christmas", she said.

"It's light right now but I like to actually come to mall, get in and out", said Julie Jones from Camden.

"We start to see larger crowds the weekend before Thanksgiving and Black Friday during our Greene Saturday and Tree Lighting events", Willshaw said.

Most sales at Renaissance range from 50 percent to 75 percent off.

"Some retailers are calling the week after Christmas the 13th month as people are finding it to be a boom time for purchases with sale merchandise and buying gift cards", Samson said. NY and Company advertised up to 80 percent off on "everything".
