Black Friday: A Shopper's Dream?

It's a day of deals and steals, but also a day of mile long lines and overcrowded stores.

Many department stores opened up shop as early as 5AM Friday morning in Craven County.

Eager consumers trailed the aisles hunting for the next big bargain.

So with some shops slashing prices by 70% was the Black Friday shopping headache all worth it?

We spoke with one shopper outside of Goody's Department Store in New Bern who said absolutely!

Department stores like Goody's plan to remain open until 11PM Friday night and reopen around 7AM Saturday morning.
