Local stores see spike in Black Friday sales

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Some local retailers are reporting an increase in sales and the number of holiday shoppers during yesterday's Black Friday sales.

"It's probably one of the craziest I've ever seen. I've been with the company for 18 years and this is one of the busiest I've seen," said Target Manager Dee Dee Davis.

Davis says this year's Black Friday sales were better than expected.

"Our sales were actually up from last year, had a lot more guests in our store than last year as well, very heavy traffic yesterday," said Davis.

The South Plains Mall also says they had more holiday shoppers than in past years. Some are saying it's because of the economy.

"We did expect it to be heavy because of the economy. We knew that our guests would be saving for the sales and they didn't let us down," said Davis.

Although Black Friday may be over, the sales are not. Cyber Monday is just a day away. It's the online version of Black Friday. You can browse hundreds of deals from major retail stores right at home.

Analysts are expecting online sales to go up as well. They predict a 3% increase in people shopping online this year.
