Believe it or not, some people-like a couple we spotted at Grand Central Mall Wednesday-had not finished their Christmas shopping.

On the day after the holiday, they were checking out discounts.

"We found what we were looking for," Pete Baldwin said, "but we were just checking different stores to price-compare."

We have one more store to check out to find what's the best price," said Laurie Baldwin. "Then the question is, do they have the size?"

For others, December 26th was a bit more traditional. Using the money, or gift cards, people got under the tree to find the perfect gift for them.

Did everyone get what they wanted for Christmas?, we asked Nickie Kimes.

"I think so, and then some, yes. I think everybody was happy. And if they didn't, they got money to buy it."

Some analysts say shopping this year was up about 5% from a year ago. Online shopping, whether it's from traditional chains or modern web retailers, accounted for a large portion of that increase.

But for some, that post-Christmas trip to the stores isn't the only thing that's traditional.

"My mom and dad got me a record player for Christmas," said Makayla Kimes. "I think (vinyl records) are cool, and I'd just like to start collecting them."

Shopping. One thing that extends the Christmas holidays one more week.
