Shoppers headed to stores Wednesday for after Christmas sales and to return gifts.

According to the National Retail Federation, the day after Christmas is one of the top five shopping days of the year. Discounts aren't typically as big as on Black Friday - the number of items on sale is usually greater.

Now is the time when consumers can expect to see big price drops on TVs, tablets, digital cameras, smartphones and clothes.

Becky Penick said she was shopping with the gift cards she received and taking advantage of sales.

The US Postal Service, UPS and FedEx are expected to be swamped with returns.

During the first week of January, UPS said it expects to handle 2 million packages that are consumers returning gifts they received.
