Black Friday lures shoppers searching for great deals

Stores across America opened their doors to millions of shoppers looking for great deals on Black Friday.

CNN's Tom Foreman talks to Retail Analyst Dana Telsey about how stores and shoppers are fairing on Black Friday and what to expect this holiday season.

Black Friday shoppers out in full force

Shoppers turned out in droves at malls and big-box stores around the country to take advantage of Black Friday deals, as retailers opened their doors earlier than ever on Thanksgiving. According to early estimates, the late evening openings are paying off.

"Like pumpkin pie and football, Thanksgiving Day shopping is quickly becoming a holiday tradition for millions of Americans," said National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay. "Steady streams of shoppers have already flooded outlets, malls and other stores throughout the country and shopped online from the convenience of their couch to kick off the holiday season."
