  • Dozens line up outside Toys R Us in St. Clairsville shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday in search of deals on holiday gifts

At the head of the line were Solomon Benami and his friend, Jackson Cochran, who had been waiting outside of the store since 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Black Friday is the start of the holiday shopping season.

"Families should enjoy Black Friday with their families and not feel that rush that they're going to miss Thanksgiving if they're not at the store", said Mitchell.

The Mega Mall is bringing back traditional Black Friday excitement with giveaways, shopping deals and more.

NEWS10 ABC will be following Black Friday throughout the morning; talking with shoppers, finding out where some of the best deals are and learning what the hottest holiday items are this year.

University Park Mall will remain open until 9 p.m. on Black Friday. He said that he usually rises early for work, but Friday he got up early to go shopping.

"Whether it's for the TVs or just our merchandise they're usually lined up out here", she said.

Loy said the mall hired a DJ this year to liven up the experience, since being at a mall food court at 8 a.m. on a Friday is not what most people think of as a thrilling experience.

One survey found almost half of respondents planned to skip Black Friday and Cyber Monday altogether this year. Meanwhile, the JC Penney store at Richland Mall was bustling in the early afternoon Friday, manager Steven Valdez said.

"With two kids that I have at home, usually they're always with us".

Others just came to see what the shopping holiday is all about.

Shop for great deals and stick around for the giveaways near the DJ booth from 6 a.m.to 3 p.m. I think Cyber Monday will end up taking over some day but I don't think it's dying, I think it's fun. Marketing Director, Molly Mitchell, says they keep the deals to Black Friday in order to let families and employees spend time together on Thanksgiving.

The federation said they would release the weekend's shopping results on November 28, the day after Cyber Monday.
