With presents unwrapped and Christmas over, many people flock to return some of those gifts that just weren't the right fit, or they maybe got two of.
While some people are playing with their new gadgets and toys, others are already thinking of returning them.
Whether your gift is not working or you just don't like it, most stores in town we spoke with will take the return with a receipt.
Lowe's Head Cashier Darion Stevens says even without a receipt, some stores will give you store credit, but to make your wait as quickly as possible, Stevens offers up some tips, "So if you don't like it, it's easier if you don't open it first before you bring it back. It's also a lot easier just mainly having the receipt. it takes time off of everything without having to look up receipts and it gets every body in and out not standing in line... which no body wants to do during the holiday season any more."
If you do not have the receipt, Stephens says it helps to have your phone number ready or the card the purchase was made on, as some stores can look up your purchase that way.
If you don't have any of these things because it was a gift, he said the last resort would be getting a store credit.
