Black Friday Shoppers Turn Out In Big Numbers For Door buster Deals

Black Friday means shoppers stormed the stores Friday morning all in an effort to save on holiday gifts.

Newschannel 6 Lindsey Rogers was there as the madness unfolded and found out what hot items are on your wish list.

They bundled up, set up their tents and camped out all night to ensure they didn't miss out on those doorbuster deals.

While dedicated Black Friday shoppers anxiously awaited employees were getting pumped up inside.

Once those doors were finally opened, the items flew off the shelves.

"We got an Epison printer," Terri Jackson said.

Lap tops were the first to sell out and TV's, video games and DVDs were other hot items.

"The items I bought, I probably saved 30 percent of what I would have spent than on a normal day," Jimmy Bendel said.

Black Friday sales are projected to be up this year with 138 million Americans expected to shop this weekend.

"It was really good, I was afraid the lines were going to be really long but they went fast," Jackson said.

She said she just couldn't bring herself to get out in the cold early morning hours and waited until the sun came up to face the crowds.

She said even though she came later nothing she wanted had sold out.

Some shoppers had a game plan, with each stop mapped out along the way.

"Target, then Wal Mart and then to the house and then here," Bendel said.

He woke up at 2:30 a.m., but, said the short night was worth more than just the items he's taking home.

"It's worth it to spend the time with mom, that's fun," he said.
