Early birds sniff out deals on Black Friday

Lawton_Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year, and people across Texoma lined up as early as noon on Thursday to get into stores that didn't open until 4 or 5 on Friday morning.  Once doors opened, folks flooded in hoping to get a holiday deal. 

  All of the early risers were there for the same reasons - bargains, deals, and getting a head start on their Christmas shopping.  Employees at J.C. Penney in Lawton said that a record number of shoppers found deals.  "We opened the north door a little before 4 o'clock and we had about 200 people come in," said Assistant Store Manager Lameesha Jones.  "Probably a little after 4 o' clock there were about 500 people in the store - and that's not even including our employees."

  With the masses of shoppers at stores all over town came long lines, and even longer waits.  "On the day after Thanksgiving if you want to get a good deal you're going to have to wait a little bit in line," said one shopper.  Some waited for nearly an hour at checkout in Wal-Mart, but still said the savings made it worth the time. 

If you missed out on Black Friday shopping, don't worry, you still have time to get out and catch some deals.  Many stores will run sales all weekend.
