Black Friday Shopping In The Magic Valley


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Shoppers poured into magic valley stores for one of the biggest shopping days of the year, Black Friday.
Shoppers on a mission to get the perfect deal, a deal many only see on Black Friday.

Target saw an estimate of five-hundred to one-thousand shoppers when the doors opened at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

"It was busy, I wouldn't say crazy but it was defiantly busy everyone was in good spirits we had a lot of great deals and the team was excited and ready for some great business” said Aaron Heaton Manger, Target.

Black Friday got off to its earliest start ever as many people cleared the table of thanksgiving dinner and headed straight to retail stores.

Some believe it ruined the shopping experience.

“I think that they ruined our tradition of standing in line at 4 a.m. because it's ridiculous to come out at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. I think they ruined it” said Teresa Jones, Black Friday shopper.

Many people had the ads mapped out before they arrived to their destination.

"The hardcore Black Friday shoppers have it planned out and know exactly what they want” said Aaron Heaton Manger, Target.

A deal day that comes once a year and kicks off holiday shopping for local retail stores.

If you missed the deals today, Cyber Monday is just two days away the busiest online shopping day.
