Weather Hits After-Christmas Sales Hard

Posted: Updated:

The day after Christmas is typically a very busy day for local malls, but the winter weather kept things calm Wednesday.

Both Valley View and Tanglewood malls say crowds were smaller than expected for most of the morning and afternoon.

While the stores may have wanted to see more people, shoppers who did partake in the post-Christmas rush tell us they were happy not to see long lines or waits.

"It's really nice," said Madeleine, who was shopping at the mall with her friend Katelyn. "We got here really early and there was, like, nobody here."

"We had to pick [my daughter] up from practice, so we figured we're already out, let's just go to the mall and do some things today," said Kay Poindexter, who was shopping at the mall with her family.
