Smaller Crowds After Black Friday Bustle

November 26, 2011, 10:14 PM by Hailey Higgins

Smaller Crowds After Black Friday Bustle
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Thanksgiving weekend shopping appears to have lost momentum Saturday after a rush of shoppers took advantage of Black Friday bargains.

What a difference a day makes. The crowd at The Empire Mall Saturday is nothing compared to the mayhem on Black Friday. And that's exactly why many of the shoppers waited that extra day before beginning their Christmas shopping.

"The lines were short, they were good. The items were placed back up on the racks very nicely so I didn't have to dig on the floor for everything," Samantha Raddle said. "It was perfect."

And while the shoppers may have missed out on an opportunity to snag Black Friday bargains, there is still plenty to go around. Retailers continue to lure shoppers in with deep discounts.

"A lot of good deals, like this one store I went in, (I spent) $10 for a tee shirt," Sarah Raddle said. "That's pretty good."

"The deals are awesome; the deals are so good." Samantha Raddle said. "We got a couple things we didn't even come and look for but they had them out, on sale, and so we are getting all of our Christmas shopping done."

But employees at The Empire Mall said the crowd was like a typical busy Saturday.

"It kind of feels like it because there are still a lot of people here but not as much as on Black Friday," Sara Raddle said.

And that's quite alright for these shoppers who are taking advantage of the smaller holiday crowd, while still getting big holiday savings.

Stores are carrying holiday sales through Sunday in an effort to keep the holiday shoppers coming.
