Holiday return season lasting longer

Christmas presents without a gift receipt are perfectly fine for Las Vegas resident Nikci Kephart, who was shopping at the Fashion Show mall last week with her family.

She doesn’t do lines, she said.

And the first few days after Christmas are known for long, long lines at the return counter.

“If it really doesn’t work out, (we’ll) donate it,” Kephart said, rather than return something in a store.

This holiday season 77 percent of consumers said they plan to return a portion of their gifts while nearly 20 percent expect to return more than half of their presents, according to a survey of 15,800 global consumers by computer technology company Oracle.
