SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Christmas shopping isn't quite over yet.  The day after Christmas is one of the biggest shopping days of the year.  Mostly because folks are bringing back unwanted gifts and hunting for new deals.

"I needed to take back a few things that were kind of, on the ugly side," Keri Taylor from Mapleton, Iowa said.

Some Christmas gifts didn't exactly work out for Keri Taylor, but that's okay, because she's planned to go shopping at Target the day after Christmas since the holiday season started.

"That was one of my wishes, was for a Christmas shopping spree after Christmas, and so my husband got me a gift card," Taylor said.

Though she got her share of great gifts this year, she said the sales are hard to resist.

"I went online last night to find what Target was going to be offering."

Taylor is like millions of Americans who come out to shop on the day after Christmas. A manager at Target says, the store opens earlier than usual to accommodate the large crowds.

"It'll be busy as if it was just another day of Christmas shopping," Gary Frafjord, a manager at the Target in Sioux City said.

Except, some items are priced to move on the day after Christmas.

Workers say one of the most popular items on sale are lights and the shelves were picked clean by midday.

The store manager also said, the longer you wait to return items, the more likely the item you want may not be in stock.

Of course, there are just some things you can't return.

"I also go a fruit cake, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with that yet," Taylor said.
