Our very own mallory beard gives us the details.
It wasn't long before jefferson pointe filled up with customers who arrived eager for an early morning shopping spree.
Mary march//shopper "we went to wal-mart; then we went to macy's; then to jc penney; and then two of us are over at menard's right now."some customers completed their christmas shopping in a matter of hours, while some fell head over heels for the good sales.
Anita mattson//shopper"i try to get christmas gifts, but sometimes i get things that aren't gifts at all-- they're just "stuff i want."shoppers huddled the storefronts in hopes of getting first dibs on coveted items...even in the dark, frigid hours before sunrise.
Mary march//shopper "i never went to sleep.
I've probably been out since midnight and i got out here since 5...close to 5 actually."
Black friday can sometimes bring a rowdy crowd, turning a shopping spree into a shopping nightmare.
However, shoppers say that's not always the case.
Anita mattson//shopper"it's a tradition and we do it.
I dont ever have a big agenda where i have to fight people for things.
It's just fun to come."

But don't fret if you can't, cyber monday is right around the corner.
