Shoppers get pushy to grab the deals

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- All too often on this day we're reminded just how powerful a deal can be. The big thing trending online, how rude shoppers were on Black Friday.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- All too often on this day we're reminded just how powerful a deal can be. The big thing trending online, how rude shoppers were on Black Friday.

We found out it doesn't matter "when" Black Friday deals start, it's a guarantee that somewhere it'll be a wild scene.

Another Black Friday has gone viral with 2 stores getting the brunt of the attention.

Just look at this video shot from a cell phone, people pushing and shoving, screaming, doing anything to get their hands on a discounted phone at a Georgia Walmart.

This is a look from a different store as the packaging for the phones was opened, obviously the prepaid deal a hot item this year.

It wasn't any more cordial at Victoria Secret stores. Watch as this packed line starts to get pushy. A couple of guys with a cell phone camera got a good chuckle as they watched the people flood the store.

On Facebook, we asked local shoppers what they thought of Black Friday.

Most of them posted how polite everyone was.

The one complaint we saw was about Sears, people saying the store didn't follow the honor system, for first come first serve. Others said the place was disorganized and had a lot of upset people inside.

Managers in the store tonight say nothing was passed on to them that indicated there were any problems. They said no managers who worked when the store opened were there tonight to comment.

Target locally took care of the "rush" problem by letting people in by waves. 20 would go, they'd shut the doors briefly and then again another 20 let in and so on.
