TYLER - The day after Christmas is known for hunting down good deals, exchanging items, and using the ever-popular gift cards.
"We're just browsing, seeing if we can find some after-Christmas deals, you know, we've been pretty successful already," said shopper Mark Hutson.
For some who will travel to see family this next week, they're just getting started.
"If anything, it's started, cause everything's on sale now," said Esmer Ortega.
Aaron Yust, the Director of Marketing at Tyler's Broadway Square Mall says throughout the holiday season, the parking lot has been full and business has been good.
He says this year, shopping habits were a little different.
"What you're seeing a lot more of this year is you're seeing a lot of people planning more in advance. They know their budgets, they know what they want to get and they're getting out early, so that really, overall helped out with the shopping experience as a whole this year," Yust said.
And as many "guys" know, not everyone on Sunday was excited about shopping.
"He's waiting on his wife, I'm waiting on my daughter and it's a sea of humanity and I'd prefer to stay in the calm seas of the waiting table here," said Rick Marion.
If you're in the mood to relive some of the shopping madness of 2010, here are some links to stories we have done.
