Shoppers Await Start of Holiday Shopping Season

The holiday shopping season kicks Friday morning, and you'll want to get your sleep because you can find the best bargains early in the morning. Kohl's and Best Buy open at 5:00 am. Target and Toys R Us open at 6:00 am. The mall opens at 7:00 am but some stores open much earlier. Kay Bee Toys, the Disney Store, Mervyns and JC Penneys open at 5:00 am.

The South Plains Mall is expecting up to 160,000 shoppers this Thanksgiving weekend and 1,500,000 from now until Christmas. There will be some relief though for parking. For the first time, the mall is offering valet parking for $5. You can find valets next to CompUSA and in-between Bealls and JC Penneys.
