>> Latest Day-After-Christmas Sales Store Closing Times for December 26, 2015 >>

The best Day After Christmas Sales store hours on December 25, 2015 might not actually turn out to be the best for either day-after-Christmas retailers or day after big-deals-deep-discount bargain hunters.   

Retail chains like Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Macy's will be keeping a close eye on their Christmas holiday shopping season sales numbers to make a decision about one of the most important shopping days of the year.

 December 26, 2015 will be a very important day of extneded store opening and closing times as retailers once again try to optimize their store hours for maximum competitive advantage.

Consumers look to the Day After Christmas clearance sales to offer them Black Friday type of deep discounts and clearance prices. And much like Black Friday, all of the largest retail chains will be using day-after-Christmas extended early opening and late closing store hours as a competitive tool to attract as many shoppers through the doors of their physical stores as possible on December 26, 2015.

The Day After Christmas is also commonly known as exchange day for Christmas gifting gone wrong. Although,due to the popularity of the shopping day and more generous extended holiday gift return policies, gift exchangers and returners are starting to avoid the Day After Christmas shopping experience.

In place of gift returns, gift card, e-gift card,and mobile gift card purchases are a primary activity For of shoppers on their Day After Christmas shopping trip.

 The combination of clearance prices and the "free money" loaded on a gift card creates Black Friday-esque sales opportunities that gift card recipients can't resist. According to CardHub.com, gift card sales in the Christmas holiday shopping season are expected to be more than $31 billion in the U.S.

(which is almost the same as the annual GDP of New Zealand).

The aggressiveness of the extended opening and closing times for Day Christmas sales will depend on the sales success that individual retailers had prior to Christmas.  The earliest opening times, latest closing times, best deals and deepest discounts will likely come from retailers like Kmart, Sears, jcpenney, and RadioShack which are also the retailers that are most likely to be closing stores or declaring bankruptcy in 2016. 

Even though for many people in the U.S. the day after Christmas is an official holiday, for the U.S. retail industry the day after Christmas will definitely be a day of work. All stores of the largest U.S. retail chains will be open on the day after Christmas for their annual after-Christmas sales and clearances. Retailers want to offer great deals to entice those who received the $28 billion of holiday gift cards to spend them and hopefully spend even more.
