When fashioning the 2013 Day-After Christmas Sales, retail leaders and marketers not only had to make decisions about the best clearance deals and deep discounts to offer day-after-Christmas bargain hunters, they also had to make more strategic decisions about store opening times on December 26, 2013.
Given the extended store hours and 24/7 marathon shopping that the largest U.S. retail chains used to lure as many customers as possible into their physical store doors, post-Christmas shoppers probably expect that store opening times for 2013 Day-After Christmas Sales will be obscenely early on December 26th.
In fact, all store opening times for 2013 Day-After Christmas Sales are modest, reasonable, and even "late" in comparison to the rest of the 2013 Christmas holiday shopping season. So far Macy's is the most aggressive with its After-Christmas store opening strategy. With 6:00 AM store opening time that is unmatched by any of its competitors, Macy's can be the first after-Christmas destination for millions of shoppers on December 26th who are eager to make purchases, as long as the deals and the prices are right. Being first with the best is one of the fundamental principles behind successful retail marketing promotions.
What follows is a complete list of brick-and-mortar store opening times for Day-After-Christmas Sales on December 26, 2013.
