The sales and the crowds were in full force for the day after Christmas at the malls and shopping centers. Gift exchanges, returns and gift card spending made the parking at a premium.

It took just about as much patience for this day as you needed for Black Friday. We were out in Bismarck at 2 p.m. Saturday (12/26) and this is what we saw in the malls, stores and parking lots.
