Gene Kennedy ReportingTradition continues this holiday season, shoppers hitting the stores for those post-Christmas deals, but it's not exactly Black Friday.

It's picked up quite a bit on the lunch hour, the parking lot's starting to full up, but this morning it felt more like Monday blues than Mall Madness.

Fifty-percent off, 60-percent off, great buys, but what happened to the buyers?

Cynthia Steadman, Shopper: “It’s just a thing where I think people don’t know it’s open.”

For those who figured it out, few are complaining. Guys and a ghost-town go hand-in-hand when it comes to shopping.

Brady Wycherly, Shopper: “Never underestimate the pull of a deal, especially with guys.”

But not everyone's buying.

Becky Ferre, Returner: “We had to return the scooters.”

In terms of crowds, it started out quite the opposite from Christmas Eve. With the mellow mood around the malls maybe mornings are the time to take advantage.
