Thousands Shop Till They Drop This Black Friday

Posted: Updated:

Shoppers were either starting round two, pulling an all-nighter, or just getting going as thousands rang in Black Friday throughout the valley.

West Acres opened their doors at 8:00 p.m. Thursday night, with a handful of other retailers who opened Thanksgiving evening as well.

Within the first two hours of West Acres opening their doors, they say more than 10,000 people entered the mall. By 7:00 a.m. they had more than 26,000 shoppers come through their doors.

Best Buy in Fargo opened up Thursday at 6:00 p.m. Shoppers rushed through their doors trying to get their hands on $300 iPads and $8 Blu-Rays.

Some, like Courtney Schatz, even just came out to take in the excitement.

"We came out because our families were working today, so I was like I'm not going to be doing anything anyway, so might as well go with the crowd," said Schatz.

Target on 13th Avenue S., in Fargo saw a line around their building stretching all the way out to 42nd St. S., before they opened at 8:00 p.m. Thursday night. Scarves, large TV's and Blu-Rays all flew off the shelves right away.

Shoppers at Target who spend $75 or more Friday, are even being rewarded with a 20% coupon off their entire store purchase good December 1st through December 7th.
