Cash registers are working overtime as Black Friday shoppers hunt for bargains. We spoke with one woman who started shopping at 8 o'clock last night. She went to bed for three hours and she was back at it again at 5a.m. Cecilia O'Connor spent the day shopping with her mom. While they shopped for people on their list, they also spent time looking for goodies for themselves. “…a couple of sweaters, some leggings, still looking for some boots--so the damage has just started. I have more damage to do,” said O’Connor.
Kim Carter and Tracie Honaker made 4 trips to the car. And no wonder--they'd been at it since 8a.m. with just a short break in between. “Got small appliances, XBOX, video games-those types of things,” said Honaker. “Got three hours of sleep--went to bed for three hours--then drove here. Got up at 3 o'clock left at 4a.m. --got here by 5a.m.,” she continued.
The mall was full of excited shoppers who couldn't wait to get their hands on the perfect gift. Some took time to take in the sights--from a train to Santa. And at Knockout Cheese Steak, employees kept hungry shoppers happy and recharged after a long day of searching the mall for deals.
