112511 shoppers Black friday C_0.jpg

The chaos seen on Thursday evening and Friday night seems to have been good for local businesses’ coffers.
Locals joined thousands of Americans in the annual Black Friday day after Thanksgiving shopping phenomenon that draws shoppers across the nation out for some of the best deals of the year.
