Retail Stores Hoping for Online Push of Shoppers

DORAVILLE, GA -- The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally the start of the busy holiday shopping season. But many people got a jump on that by hitting the stores Thursday or going online.

Ironically, retailers are now using the popularity of internet shopping to try and get customers back into the stores. Indeed, in many ways this year, Black Friday isn't waiting till Friday.

Major stores opened Thanksgiving Day to give themselves a drum leg up on the bottom line.

"I do my shopping first, get my sales, then you go eat; then you rest up for 5 o'clock," said Lorraine Grant, as she went from aisle to aisle at Kmart in Doraville.

Many shoppers were like her, preferring to go against the grain and avoid the crush at the cash register.

"Jewelry, lots of jewelry deals," mused shopper Josanne Heath. "Not a lot of people are out here, so there are not a lot of crowds to deal with."
