Crowds of people shuffled through the mall, some looking for a good deal, others making returns.

For Charlene Dean, day-after-Christmas shopping is a family tradition.

"It's been a family event but only for the girls to spend their Christmas money," Dean said.

Shoppers who got to the mall before lunch noticed smaller crowds than years past.

"It's not near as crowded. I guess everyone is sleeping off their turkey or watching football games," said Rebekah Swain.

Some experts predict this could be the highest-spending holiday season in four years. Last year shoppers spent nearly $8 billion the day after Christmas.
