Black Friday Shopping
It's the day after Thanksgiving, which means for nearly 24 hours people have been out beginning their holiday shopping on Black Friday.
Stores opening up as early as 6 p.m. last night for shoppers to get those door buster deals.
Some shoppers camped out overnight, others got up pretty early.
"I got up at 4 a.m.," said Manuel Chavez.
"We were actually going to wake up at 2 a.m. but I slept in until 4 a.m. It's my fault we're late," said Malea Caldwell.
Some of the most popular stores shoppers couldn't wait to get to are Best Buy, Macy's and Target.
People traveled from as far as Hermiston and Othello truly commited to getting their hands on those door buster deals.
"I got some jeans for $20 and some shirts for less than $20," Rhonda Bernards.
But did everyone get what they were searching for?
"We were looking for a computer which we found and also a hard drive and some memory sticks just some electronic stuff," said Rockey Stoddard.
Others weren't as lucky.
"We missed some deals on some Xboxes and we missed a deal here on a Crayola Color Cube and it just wasn't meant to be," said Stacey Stanek.
The hottest commodity seems to be electronics.
"I got a T.V. it's 55" and I got it for $500 dollars from $1000," Chavez.
Some find this to be the perfect day for quality family time.
"It's tradition! Mother, daughter shopping, whether we need to shop or not, every year we have to go out," said Malea Caldwell. "It's just a fun thing to do for us."
One shopper has some advice for everyone out there.
"Have fun, have fun. Don't get crazy. We've done the rush through the store crowds and it's just not worth it, we come later it's a lot of fun,"Kathy Erz.
The National Retail Federation is projecting 2013 holiday sales to rise 3.9% last year to a total of more than $600 billion creating anywhere 720,000 and 780,000 seasonal jobs.
