NEW YORK (PIX11) -- The presents are unwrapped but the holiday shopping rush is far from over.

The Friday after Christmas is predicted to be the second busiest shopping day of the year.

For some, after-Christmas sales are where you can score the biggest deals.

Whether you’re a bargain hunter, gift card bearer or returning a gift that didn’t quite work out, stores are ready to meet your every shopping desire.

Big box stores like Macy’s in Herald Square opened extra early allowing eager shoppers to get a head start at 6 a.m.

The day after Christmas is traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Most retailers are hoping to bounce back from disappointing sales on Black Friday and Super Saturday.

For anyone looking to make that gift card or holiday cash go a little bit farther, experts say the heaviest discounts can be found with clothing, electronics and beauty products.

And there's no shame in upgrading one of those gifts.

Nearly 40 percent of consumers are expected to return at least one of their holiday gifts this year.

But before you do, here are a few things to keep in mind:

-Save your receipt.
-Know the store policy.
-Bring your ID.

More and more retailers are asking for ID to cut down on fraud.
