Not All Black Friday Shoppers Running Into Crowds

  • Photo
NILES, Ill. (AP) Not all Black Friday shoppers are finding crowded stores and long checkout lines.

A few shoppers turning up before dawn on Friday had no trouble finding parking at a Target in the Chicago suburb of Niles.

Estevan Branscum joked that everyone else must be asleep.

The 24-year-old chef and his wife, 27-year-old grocery store manager Dana Branscum, were hunting for what they called "little things" like movies. The couple said that's because they never seem to get lucky in competing with the crowds for big ticket items.

The Branscums plan to spend between $800 and $1,000 this holiday season.

For Dana Branscum Friday morning was Round 2. She also hit the shops Thursday evening, when she said the crowds were much bigger.
