Shoppers Prepare for Black Friday

WILMINGTON -- While families are together for the Thanksgiving feast, retailers are preparing for what they hope will be an even bigger gathering, the holiday shopping season.

It starts Friday with one of the highest traffic shopping days that's become known as Black Friday.

Many stores are closed before the rush, but many people flocked to K-Mart in Wilmington where they say the sales have already started.

Some people will do anything they can to stay away from the crowd, but for others it's more like a sporting event.

Many stores open as early as 5:00 a.m. Friday.
