MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The presents are open and the wrapping paper is covering your living room floor. But not all of those gifts may have hit the mark, so it’s time to head back to the store.

But there are a few things you should know before you hit the mall to exchange those gifts.

The day after Christmas is one of the biggest shopping days of the year — only second to Black Friday.

One of the biggest reminders for returns — bring your receipt. Only a few stores will accept a return without one.

“You want to be sure to not open the packaging, if you’re not sure you want it. Because, forget it — you can leave all the tags and labels on the item, but if you destroy the packaging or rip it apart, again, you’ll have a much more difficult time returning it,” said Tod Marks, Consumer Reports Senior Editor.

Some stores will take back items if the packaging is open, so it’s best to check with each individual store’s policy before making a return.

    This is why I don’t buy for anyone, and I don’t allow them to buy for me.
    Everyone gets what they need, or want, and in the right size, and color.

      Right, because we all know it’s what you get and how much you spend. It’s a gift. Smile and say thanks and be grateful.

    OK, it looks as if the drift towards ailbicbl nitpicking is just too strong. At least there’s four of us interested, not only two. Anyone else is welcome to join in!FaceLift, Fundamentalist wasn’t made to mean something else in a vacuum. If your capital-Evangelical figureheads behave in the same intolerant, dogmatic and arrogant way as they did when they proudly called themselvelves Fundamentalists, making themselves and their theology easy targets for disdain, won’t your adoption of evangelical as your word end up doing the same thing? That seems a bit unfair on the original European Protestant Evangelical label which they have proudly worn for centuries to emphasise that their teaching is based on the Gospel, and also the Church of England Evangelical movement with its emphasis on salvation by faith. Neither of these older Evangelical groups require adherence to the doctrine of inerrancy. For inerrantists to claim the label is disenfranchising these older Evangelical traditions.Are we going to need to say Protestant Evangelical, Anglican Evangelical and Bible Evangelical (or Conservative Evangelical as I have heard in Sydney) in order to differentiate? It’s a lot of syllables.
