“My grandma got me a pair of socks and I wanted to return them and then I had money so I came and bought myself a shirt," said Radich.

Local shopper, Alyssa Stauffer also took atvantage of the deals.

"We went to Bath and Body Works, I’ve never seen the sales so low we got some nice lotions," said Stauffer.

Laura Morrow,Target retail workers said people were lining up since the morning.

"It’s been insane since the minute our doors opened at 7 a.m. its been very busy," said Morrow.

Morrow said one of their top items was plastic storage bins, which many use to put away their Christmas decorations.

"People are coming in, we can’t even keep them full right now," said Morrow.

Mt.Shasta Mall was also packed, different stores offering amazing deals and steals.

"A lot of people coming in today returning stuff and getting better prices," said Radich.

For those of you who do have some returns to make, keep in mind that each store has different return policies.
