Early Store Openings, Late Store Closings – Inventory Clearance, Gift Card Sales
After Christmas Day has ended, Day-After-Christmas Clearance Sales begin and the leaders and marketers at Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Macy’s, and all of the largest U.S. retail chains once again have key strategic decisions to make about day-after-Christmas store opening times and hours. Early store openings and late store closings will be the retail story once again for brick-and-mortar retailers that need extended store hours strategies in order to compete with online retailers for after-Christmas inventory clearance and gift card sales revenue.
It’s not really the foolhardy consumers who are silly enough to do gift returns on December 26th that the leaders of the largest physical retail chains are considering when they choose their day-after-Christmas store hours. It’s the nearly $30 billion worth of gift cards tucked in the pockets and purses of after-Christmas shoppers that retailers want to capture between Christmas and New Year’s Day to boost their 2013 holiday sales results.
What follows is a complete list of Day-After-Christmas Sales brick-and-mortar store openings, closing times and store hours for December 26, 2013. This list is arranged according to store opening times, with the earliest day-after-Christmas store opening hours listed first.
