Morning Poll: Will You Be Making Returns This Week?

Now that Christmas has come and gone, and all the presents have been unwrapped, another holiday tradition is upon us: the rush back to stores to return unwanted or ill-fitting gifts.

The week after Christmas is traditionally a busy one for retailers as they start to take returns (and as shoppers who received gift cards start to cash them in).

Will you be making returns this week?

    I think I’ll wait ’til the crowds die down a little.

    • Clarendon

      No kidding! I’m downstate and went to Best Buy to get a cable. The checkout line was ok but the return line was crazy long.

  • John

    Had to go to Best Buy yesterday– the new laptop we’d bought was a lemon (video died). It was about a 90 minute process to make the exchange.

  • Pentagon City was a hornet’s nest yesterday.

    • Southeast Jerome

      Specifically- Macys was absolutely insane. I felt so bad for the employees working there. It looked like nobody was buying anything, just exchanges and returns.

  • DarkHeart

    I’ve got plenty of books to return.

    The County Library’s web catalog search feature seems to be currently down.

  • NoVapologist

    I returned a couple of things at Tysons yesterday morning. It looked pretty crowded but my transactions went swiftly and efficiently.

    Best Buy has always made returns/exchanges excruciatingly difficult (the cynic in me believes this is a conscious corporate policy). I shop at BB only as a last resort.
