SALISBURY, Md.- Holiday shoppers are looking forward to catching the best deals from Black Friday sales. From flat screen TV's to getting the best prices on toys; how early is too early? Black Friday has traditionally meant shopping on Friday, but now Thanksgiving Thursday is bringing our shoppers even earlier. 

William Jackson said his families Thanksgiving schedule will change for his wife. He said, " We'll have an early dinner tomorrow and she can go at 6 o'clock to spend my hard earned money on Black Friday; whatever she wants."

Some shoppers said opening stores for sales on Thanksgiving takes away from its meaning. Andy Franks said, " Thursday is meant for family, celebration and spending time with friends and maybe those that are less fortunate. Thanksgiving Day should be spent with that group." Davette Askins said shopping on Thursday was too soon. 

Many stores across Delmarva will open doors for Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving starting at 6 p.m.

    With temperatures expected to drop in the coming weeks, fire safety officials are urging people who use space heaters to warm up rooms or homes to be careful in where and when they use the devices.

    Dover Assistant Fire Chief Chris Jacobs said there does tend to be an increased number of space heater fires once it becomes much colder. Those incidents, he said, are often caused by people who place heaters near combustible materials or leave them unattended while still on.
