Well whether you're shopping in stores, or surfing online, retailers are still trying to end the year on a positive note.

Stores big and small aren't getting a break from the rush of shoppers; it's all about the returns and the exchanges.

G and L Clothing on Ingersoll saw a lot of exchanges today.

It's a common theme around the metro as people return clothes that maybe were too small or too big.

Sometimes they may have even gotten too many of the same thing.

Frank Marcovis from G and L Clothing says its not uncommon for people to bring in two or three pairs of gloves that they got for Christmas.

But one thing you won't find at this locally owned store is after Christmas sales.  They just don't agree with them.
 
 "Well it doesn't seem right to wait until the day after Christmas to put everything on sale, and sort of penalize people for shopping before Christmas.  No we want them to basically have the same price," says Marcovis.

He also says that winter gear sales have kicked into overdrive, now that we finally have some cold weather.
