KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Now that Christmas is over, many people are once again hitting the stores, this time to return unwanted gifts.

People like Bryan Dameron are packing stores at Turkey Creek today not just to shop, but also to return Christmas gifts.

"We are just returning a blue ray player. We got one and I'm sure they're just going to switch it out hopefully," Dameron said.

He says the lines in Target are moving fast.

"We just got here. We've been in line about five minutes so not long at all," Dameron said.

"We are staffed and ready for it, ready to take care of the crowds that we see today," said Target employee Mike Webb.

Over at Best Buy, Tammy Lanham returned her microwave because it caught on fire. She says when dealing with long lines, patience is key.

"Take your time, be patient, that's all you can do," Lanham said.

Store employees at Best Buy and Target explain their return policies to 6 news.

We've got a 90-day return policy for most items. Electronics and things like that have some stipulations but for the most part it's a 90-day return policy," Webb said.

"Basically anything that was bought November 3rd to December 31st you have until January  15th to bring it back," Flo Stallard said.

Stallard says the two biggest reasons people return gifts are because they already have the same item, or they just don't like it.

"It's just a mixture of everything. Some people get stuff they didn't really want. It's kind of like Christmas sweaters, people are like I would rather have something else," Stallard said.

Some other things to keep in mind when returning gifts: to get a full refund most stores require a receipt. Without the receipt, you can usually only get store credit.
