The day after Thanksgiving is also known as Black Friday, and it marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Once again, many stores across the region are chopping prices with the hopes of getting shoppers out to the malls and stores.

Derek Amundson, a local holiday consumer, says, "I thought there were some good deals."

But not everyone appreciates the hectic activity Black Friday can bring. Even some folks that are hitting the stores prefer to do their buying in a more modern fashion.

Danielle Beaudette says, "I will do online shopping. I like online better"

A promising sign for the economy is that many people are willing to spend more money this year during the shopping season than they did last year. Amundson continues, "I didn't spend a lot last year, so it won't be hard to beat."

An associate from Best Buy says that one of the most popular selling items this year is a 50" high definition television for $200. The Best Buy in Duluth sold out of the item in under an hour.
