JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Holiday shopping was officially in high gear following the Black Friday frenzy.  Shoppers continued to pack stores Saturday as retailers extended the savings throughout the weekend.

Parking was hard to come by at Renaissance in Ridgeland. Target in Jackson was offering a two day sale which kept aisles busy. Some families who woke up early for Black Friday doorbusters returned Saturday for more shopping.

"I have three children.  It takes every ounce of energy that I have to get what I can get for them and the prices that they have this weekend.  You can get everything that you need and save all kinds of money," said shopper Scottie Doyle.

"Based on our traffic today and us trending better than last year on today's sales I think we'll have a very good holiday season.  We had a strong week prior to Black Friday so it looks like it will be a very strong season for us," said Jackson Target Manager Alan Wise.

Nationally retail sales rose a slight .03% compared with the day after Thanksgiving last year.
