AIEA (KHNL) -- Bargain hunters woke up early Wednesday morning to take advantage of generous discounts offered by many retailers the day after Christmas.

Santa has left the building, but not all the merchandise has.

The day after Christmas is still a very important time for retailers, who are discounting merchandise to get shoppers into the stores.

"The day after Christmas, my friend and I, we've been doing this for about seven or eight years, we'll meet at a coffee shop early in the morning like 6, 6:15, you know, we'll get our little girl thing out of the way and then we will come and shop," said Eleyne Fia.

"My friend and I , we work at different places, we see each other maybe four times a year, so this is our time to catch up and go for all the sales," said Michele Baldov.

Small discounts just Tuesday are slasher sales Wednesday.

"You can find a lot of hidden treasures, a lot of sales the day after Christmas."

"50% off on all kinds of Christmas wraps, supplies, all that and the ornaments, she likes to come here for the ornamants."

She says shopping the day after Christmas is better than shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

"I got earrings that were like $40, for $9 at Macy's."

This crucial holiday period accounts for 30% of retailer's yearly sales. They're hoping this final push will help the numbers.
