ATLANTA — An East Coast snowstorm put a damper on after-Christmas shopping Sunday. But shoppers across the rest of the country scoured clearance racks and spent gift cards during the afterglow of the best holiday season for retailers since 2007.
Washington, D.C., was expecting 5 to 8 inches of snow Sunday. The East Coast from New Jersey to Maine had blizzard warnings. Predictions called for 11 to 16 inches of snow in New York City.
