Local retailers will open their doors for the busiest return day of the season Wednesday.

Walmart manager Christy Burns said she anticipates a big day.

The retailer will open its doors at 6 a.m., for returns.

“Rest assured, Walmart will be ready to take those items back,” Burns said. “In fact, there will be specific registers open for returns only in addition to our service desk.”

Burns said IDs will be required for those who do not have a gift receipt or receipt.

“We’re expecting a typical day,” she said. “And the day after Christmas is always a good day.”

Down the road at JCPenney, the store will open at 7 a.m.

Manager Dennis Cockrell said returns will be accepted at any register.

“We will need an ID without a receipt,” he said. “And returns without a receipt will go on a gift card.”

Additionally, Cockrell said those with gift cards or those who want to take advantage of an after-Christmas sale may shop the after-Christmas clearance event.

Goody’s will open at 8 a.m., Maurices will open at 10 a.m.

Local merchant Ansley Place will open at 10 a.m., and they’ll have their annual 50 percent off Christmas merchandise sale.

Both Pink Peppers and Town & Country will be closed tomorrow, but will open their doors on Dec. 27.

“We offer exchanges,” said Pink Peppers owner Marriane Dubose. “We’ll have merchandise in that day, too.”

Town & Country will open at 10 a.m., on Dec. 27.
