4:35 am
one of anchor stores, jc penny as we spin around, you'll see lights on, matching the cherry hill mall lights, very red, very bright, they are the first to open, and like wal-mart at 6:00ah the day after christmas. so if you are not only shopped out by all of the prechristmas stuff and by the way, that includes shopping for parking spot, jc penny opening up at 6:00, for those returns, and for all that stuff that you want to get at a jc penny. so best day to return, retail experts say is today, the early the better because you get most spending power, since you can take advantage of all of the after christmas sales, and if you watched tv yesterday, you are already seeing the commercials for after christmas sales. but, after christmas sales, dominated by clothes, and malls are dominated by clothing stores, and that is why the malls are mobbed the day after christmas with so many of these clothing stores, in places like the cherry hill mall and king of prussia and so many signs at the mall
4:36 am
doorways, pulling you in, with those outlandish looking sales sign numbers, that go as high as 80 percent off. so with many workers taking christmas week, through new years as a vacation week from schools and kindergarten and college on christmas break so many families are completely off together, that they go to the malls, movies, and all of the big department stores the day after christmas. so, it is also a day to use those gift card you got from grand mom because she doesn't know what size you are anymore and easy for her just to stick that in the greeting card and then, you can get, whatever you want yourself, and take advantage of those cards, maybe regift them today, and or use them yourself if you didn't get what you wanted and you can give yourself that gift today and remember those things expire. i like to give cash because cash is, i think, never expired, only to inflation, so we will show you a rare sight here at cherry hill hall, especially in the last few weeks, an empty parking lot. you can get good parking right
4:37 am
now right near the store doors , if you get here early today and you'll bead the crowds, but, even though everybody is off today, including bob kelly, mr. traffic, it is going to be a traffic nightmare today for everybody racing around, still visiting family members, still shopping, and yesterday when i drove home from work 95, northbound from the center city area to the betsy ross bridge was stop and go and i could not believe it. i thought there was an accident. it was just people visiting family members, a lot have of out of state plates, people not knowing where they were going people in the left lan inging 3 miles an hour. the just be patient again even if you are off today you have no reason to be in a rush, you'll get there. >> that is the true, thanks, steve. >> word to live by nice and slow. >> thanks, steve. in other news right now maybe you saw these tweets from our president and president-elect. we will start with the president obama letting american people know how he was celebrating christmas with this tweet posting a picture saying best part of the
