Shoppers Look for Black Friday Deals All Day

Posted: Updated:

With the Thanksgiving feast now over, thousands enjoyed another big holiday tradition by hitting stores across our area.

Many shoppers didn't want to deal with the midnight rush. So Friday, they're doing their shopping a little more casually.

"We are here because we are actually looking for a couple of things, and we were hoping to avoid some of the rush," says Nicole Vance.  

There was a definite rush. Thursday night, hundreds waited in line outside. TV's and electronics disappeared fast, but Target says there are still deals to be had.

"The guests that didn't come in last night, they still have an opportunity to get some good sales throughout the weekend," says Target employee Ben Fry.  

At The Summit, shoppers took advantage of Friday's beautiful weather to get some Christmas shopping out of the way as well. By mid-afternoon, it was tough to find an empty parking space.

"There's a lot of foot traffic," says Alexia Bratiotis, general manager at The Summit. "I'm talking to the stores and hearing that they're doing very well. So, we're thrilled with Black Friday's kick-off to the holiday season."

Bratiotis says this is the busiest Black Friday they've ever had. That's because it was filled with shoppers who also didn't want to race around last night.

"I'm not going to get up in the middle of the night to go shopping," says Amanda Garcia. "But, I found some good deals today too. So, I think it's been worth it to come down."

Shoppers say it's mostly electronics and clothing flying off the shelves.

"Pretty much anything with an Apple logo," says Gregory Dean. "Pretty much anything with a "75 percent off" sign. Pretty much anything that fits."

Bratiotis says some of the stores sold some items so quickly, they're not sure what they're going to do for the rest of the weekend.

"We're hoping to keep this pace all the way through the holiday season," she says.

Black Friday may be over, but the shopping will definitely continue. Don't forget, folks can still find good deals on Cyber Monday.
