Albany-- Those who weren't out shopping after Christmas filled stores to make those unavoidable holiday returns but if not careful, many can be left with unwanted merchandise.

The return and exchange lines at many stores were pretty full Monday. The best way to make that wait a smooth one is to have a receipt but some stores are able to look up a customer's transaction in their system. The hardest things to return are electronics. Opened software, music, and movies can usually only be exchanged for the same item. Some big ticket electronics may even cost you a restocking fee for returning them.

"A lot of items have been added to the restocking charge list. Most items such as computers, laptops, and desktops digital cameras, camcorders, PDA's, radar detectors," says Circuit City Sales Manager Matthew Barnes.

A restocking fee may be as much as 15 percent of the purchase price. Also, be careful when you return your merchandise. Some stores only allow as little as 14 days to return an item so be sure to thouroughly read return and exchange policies.
