CHICAGO (CBS) — Are you hoping Santa Claus still has a little something in his sack for you? Even jolly old St. Nick is probably scoping out the after-Christmas sales on Wednesday.
CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports the Target store on Elston Avenue in Bucktown opened an hour early Wednesday morning to accommodate shoppers either returning gifts, or trying to get in on the deep discounts you can always find the day after Christmas.
The store was busy right when the doors opened at 7 a.m. Most shoppers headed straight for the back of the store, where all the holiday merchandise was on sale.
In electronics, several TVs had prices slashed, and the store was offering a $50 gift card for those who buy the new iPod Touch 5.
WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty reports plenty of people also were shopping at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg.
