CHICAGO (CBS) — Forget Thanksgiving with the family. For many shoppers, Thursday night was all about finding big deals.
Hundreds of people walked into the Target in Lombard when it opened at 6 p.m. Thursday, looking for Thanksgiving discounts.
One woman was shopping on Thanksgiving for the first time.
“My TV went out in July, and I’ve been waiting since July to buy a new TV. Why not Black Friday?” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m going to stand in the cold, and get me a TV.’”
A new TV wasn’t the only thing on her shopping list.
“Pajamas, a TV, beets, sheets, socks,” she said.
