Team Coverage, KSL NewsradioShoppers en mass are rolling out of the sack this morning, looking to fill their sacks with post-Christmas bargains.

Some shoppers showed up at 6 a.m. to exchange gifts or look for good buys on things like clothing and electronics.

Eyewitness News talked with four different women who are shopping for Christmas 2008. We found one delighted shopper with a snowman outside the Wal-Mart at Jordan Landing. Some shoppers are already picking up wrapping paper for next year.

Experts say because you love the word "sale," you may want to head to department stores first.

"It seems to be the place where they were hardest hit in terms of consumers kind of clamping down on spending, so they have a lot of excess inventory," explained Jennifer Waters, with marketwatch.com.

Waters says you may find the best discounts on clothes, especially winter gear. She says retailers are also preparing for a huge group with gift cards. "They'll be bringing in some new items, things that you haven't seen yet," she said.

Of course, the best sale items will be on seasonal goods.
