Long lines of eager shoppers take on Black Friday

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Typically Black Friday would be getting started, well right about now, but not this year. Crowds built up outside of stores hours before usual because stores opened way earlier this year. Most of them letting the rush storm in at midnight.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Typically Black Friday would be getting started, well right about now, but not this year. Crowds built up outside of stores hours before usual because stores opened way earlier this year. Most of them letting the rush storm in at midnight. Our Kelsey Roseth spent the night out in the mix, to see how people are adapting to this ever changing post-Thanksgiving holiday.

Shoppers were seeking Black Friday bargains long before stores even opened.

William Case – West Fargo: "Got here at 8 yesterday."

Best Buy Shoppers spent days waiting for this moment. Over at Target, people came prepared to deal with the chaotic crowds.

Alex Loomis – Fargo: "Gotta have a plan of action."

For Alex Loomis and Lauryn Wilso, spending Black Friday with school friends is a tradition.

Lauryn Wilson - Fargo: "Poor college student, so I need this stuff."

And at the Mall, though most stores opened at different times. It didn't stop people from purchasing products. Long lines wrapped around large stores like Target didn't last long, but stores say this steady stream of customers should continue throughout the night.

Nancy Lobb: "We'll be going until way past four."

Tonight AT 6, we'll take a look at some of the hottest holiday items. Many stores gave away Black Friday Freebies. JcPenny is handing out snow-globes to some shoppers.

Old Navy is giving away some Kodak Easy-Share Sport digital cameras to those who purchase at least 40 dollars in the store and Sears has Thomas Kinkade collectible ornaments, which they're passing out to people who purchase clothing, intimate apparel, and accessories.
