Black Friday Shoppers Hunt for Holiday Deals

Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - While there may not have been a mad rush inside the door at Best Buy in Salisbury on Friday morning, plenty of shoppers made their way to the electronic retailer to hunt for the perfect holiday deal.

Doors opened up at Best Buy at 6 PM on Thanksgiving and stayed open all night long so customers wandered in during the wee hours of the morning.

"It's been pretty good.  We hit the outlets about 8 o'clock and we got to Salisbury a couple of hours ago.  We've got some good deals.  I got a lot of Christmas shopping done," said Katie Lee of Cambridge.

The holiday shopping season used to kick-off with Black Friday but it has now transformed into a kick-off weekend that includes Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday as well.  Because of the transformation, retail experts believe Black Friday itself may actually be slower this year than in year's past.  Also, the National Retail Federation predicts the entire weekend could see a decline of nearly 5% from last year in the number of people shopping both in stores and online. 

However, there was at least one new Black Friday shopper in Salisbury.  Kyle MIller was in town visiting family for Thanksgiving.

"You're only young once so I mean, might as well make the most of it. I've never done this before.  Minnesota doesn't have that much shopping compared to here so I figured I would get out and at least experience all the rage of Black Friday shopping," said Miller from Minnesota.

140 million Americans are expected to shop in some form or fashion this weekend, are you one of them?
