Fargo’s Black Friday buzz

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Back at home in the F-M area, while many of you were sleeping, thousands of others were shopping, as well.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Back at home in the F-M area, while many of you were sleeping, thousands of others were shopping, as well.

In every store you wander into, there's a shopper like Daryl.

“The deals are hot down here and helping the American economy."

He's turned this annual event into a tradition, traveling all the way from Canada to grab the lower price tags.

Some so steep, we asked: Really?

"I have to admit, I'm not a big Black Friday shopper. Is it worth it?"

"It is. If you're a smart shopper, it's worth it."

"You wouldn't think about it until you get out here, and then all of a sudden, you find them and then you're like, ‘oh, that is a good deal.’"

Then there are customers like Kelly.

Kelly Erholtz- Black Friday Shopper: "I’m tired, but I figure, let's keep going.'

Who, like many Americans, is trying out this Brown or Black, grey whatever you want to call it, Thursday a go.

"I didn't think I would like it, but now that I'm here, I'm spending money."

And there are companions like Robert who may not be the biggest fans of Black Friday, but his other half sure is.

Robert Edwards- Black Friday Shopper: "My wife needed someone to go with and her best friend was unavailable to go tonight, so I am the choice."

Natalie isn't a shopper, but she is playing zoo-keeper on the busiest shopping day of the year.

Natalie Perhus- Best Buy Employee: "I’ve seen, several times, people actually knock stuff over and leave it. And we're just like ‘okay, I guess I'll clean that up for you real quick.’"

All to keep every shopper happy like Daryl, who's more than dedicated to his holiday list.

"14-15 hours… We should be wearing our pajamas, but we're not."
