Shoppers rush local stores


Black Friday marked the opening of the Christmas shopping season, leaving local retailers satisfied and some shoppers exhausted.

"I've never seen all the stores so busy, to be honest," said Elizabeth Martin, 12, of Jamestown, who was at the Buffalo Mall Friday afternoon.

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is traditionally the day when retailers go from being "in the red" to being "in the black."
