If you’re headed out to shop Thursday, you won’t be alone.

Analysts are predicting large large crowds at stores and as the LA Times reports, this year those shoppers won’t just be dissatisfied gift recipients. There will also be “earlier opening hours and deeper discounts from stores hoping to clear their inventory and pad their revenue before the end of the year.”

So, if you have some gift cards to cash in, you could be able to get a lot more for your money.

According to the news outlet, data firm ShopperTrak predicts after-Christmas crowds will be the fifth-largest of the year. Nearly 8 in 10 consumers surveyed for digital coupon marketplace RetailMeNot plan to shop year-end sales.

    this article is wrong, I work in retail, i know, they are no more sale items, no deeper discounts, unless the item is “Christmas” related like ornaments, tree toppers, lights, candy, everything else is not on “deeper discount”
    Consumers just received gift card, cash and gifts they did not want, they are off for the holiday, and want to get out and get their refunds.
