MILFORD - Retail stores hoping to recover from low sales this holiday season offered huge discounts to shoppers the day after Christmas.

Shoppers at the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall in Milford hit the stores Friday morning to return gifts and see how much they can buy with their gift cards.

Many retailers say this weekend won?t be the only opportunity to get deals. They're extending their sales into the new year.

SpendingPulse reported that sales this holiday season are down by as much as 8 percent.
