Black Friday Frenzy

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Black Friday is still in progress, but it got an early start Friday morning, and in some cases a late start Thursday night. Typically stores open at around 5 a.m., Friday, but this year most stores opened their doors several hours earlier.

Toys R Us opened at 9 p.m., Thursday, Wal-mart unveiled their Black Friday deals at 10 p.m., Thursday, and Best Buy was open for business at midnight.

Even after the doors were opened lines still spilled out of the entrance, because of crowding. One of the best deals we heard about was a 42-inch flatscreen TV at Best Buy for $199.

Anecdotal evidence suggests most shoppers were on their best behavior and there were no arrests. However, Jackson Police had to break-up some disagreements between customers.
