After Christmas – Time To Return Gifts!
Sunday morning, we ripped open all the presents under the tree and told everyone how much we liked their gifts… even if we didn’t.
Now, it’s time to stand in the returns line and get what we really want!
For example, that ugly Christmas sweater. Grandma tries so hard every year to get something nice. But maybe she can’t see very good anymore and goes for the most hideous item on the rack.
It seems to happen quite often! According to the folks at MarketTools, 62% of Christmas clothing gifts are returned.
Yahoo reports that other gifts that are also returned quite often include: Toys and games, electronics, jewelry, and cosmetics. (I didn’t even know you could return cosmetics!)
The story goes on to say that some people will return presents in order to pay bills. Retailers expect to lose over $46 Billion on returns this year.
