Early bird shoppers run into a Target store in Aurora, Ohio looking for bargains at the beginning of ‘Black Friday’ shopping early Friday, Nov. 28, 2008. Shoppers, who had snapped their wallets shut since September, flocked to stores and malls before dawn Friday to grab deals on everything from TVs to toys for the traditional start of the holiday shopping season, feared to be the weakest in decades.
