Stores Expected To Stay Packed Through Black Friday Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Fargo Police say it was a relatively quiet Black Friday. Only a few fights over parking spots and a couple shop lifters happened through the night. And even though thousands of people filled valley businesses for deals last night, people are keeping the stores packed through the weekend.

Black Friday shopper,Adrienne Manningway, says, "Where's my coffee, I need coffee."

"Went for a 3 hour nap, then went shopping again!" says Black Friday shopper, Cindy Finney.

They've stocked up on caffeine

"We had to coordinate each other. You're going to stand here for this hour and I'm going to go here," says Manningway.

And are running on pure adrenaline.

"This is just a small portion of what we purchased. You name it, we got it," says Manningway. She and her family spent 13 hours at Walmart last night and this morning, hit up dozens of other stores and have shopped non stop for more than 24 hours... All for Black Friday.

Black Friday shopper, Clarice Peters, says, "I think we saved a thousand dollars."

It's a day where everything you put in your shopping bag, saves you from freeing up extra space in your wallet. But the savings come with a price tag on your time.

Finney says, "The door openers were pretty crazy."

This is what it looked like in the Fargo Target store on Thursday night. Lines wound through the entire store! It's estimated that 147 million people decked the halls of malls this Black Friday to fill the space under the tree.

"This one is from me to me," Peters.

Many stores have deals that run through the weekend, so if you weren't able to shop yet, you've still got time... That is if you can handle it.

Peters says, "We're not quite done yet."

"I'm starting to burn out," says Finney.

Shoppers spent a record of 52.4 billion dollars on the 2011 black Friday weekend, according to CNN Monday. Some economists predict this year's total to be slightly lower.
