However, after some days they went about 70 miles away for shopping and came back. So, now are they considered residents or travelers?

When someone travels the legal distance (of 48 miles) the place of residence is nullified and it’s not a requirement that when he/she leaves he/she would have to make the intention of not returning to it and do a migration. If someone leaves a place, despite the fact that, that person’s all belongings are at that place but it’s only when he/she returns with the intention of staying fifteen days or over at that place that the place would become a place of residence and if the intention is not for fifteen days that place would not be a place of residence rather the person would be considered a traveler. Henceforth, in the above mentioned case those two are travelers and would have shortened their prayers.
