Black Friday shopping begins on Thanksgiving

Stores are opening earlier than ever for holiday shoppers, including Toys R Us stores in the Bronx, which opened shortly after many Americans sat down for Thanksgiving dinner.



Many consumers say the day should be reserved for spending time with family, while others snuck out to take advantage of holiday deals.



Some spent hours waiting outside of stores, hoping to get inside before hot door-buster items sold out.



Retail store managers say customers should try to get in as early as possible because sale items tend to fly off the shelves.
