Do you go out shopping right after the New Year? I know that some people do, but I personally don't. I don't do much shopping. I typically go the day after Christmas because that's when I've seen the best deals.
No there is no point, places are too busy right after the New Year. I make a point to have everything I need before hand.
I never really heard of people going out of there way to get shopping done after the new year though. I guess not till mid January at least when season sales start.
