DALLAS - Black Friday isn't what it used to be. It's more like casual Friday for the opening of Christmas season. While retailers had some great doorbusters, this year shoppers weren’t busting to get in. “I just got up too late, but I'm here now. I’ll go in and see what they have," said one customer.
On Friday, Target team members were working on a great wall of TV’s, in the clothing aisle. After the latest Cowboys win, fans want to see the boys on a new clear, big screen TV. Target Store Director, Clay Campbell says, “After the Cowboy game, it did push things later. Cowboys won so that was fantastic. We had so many Cowboy fans in the store.”
While trends show shoppers are going online rather than to the mall during black Friday weekend, there's still plenty of shoppers bucking the trend and hitting the stores. “Went to NorthPark first, went to lululemon, stood in line with all the high school kids," said another shopper.
