Thousands flocked to the malls Saturday to take advantage of some major post holiday sales. Some stores offered discounts as deep as 75 percent off.

"Retailers are wanting to get rid of the excess merchandise," said shopper Nicole Baker, "and after a day with family you want to go out and go shopping."
