Black Friday Turnout Seems Stronger Than A Year Ago

Good news as Reuters is reporting that Black Friday sales seem to be up from a year ago today. According to the National Retail Federation, up to 134 million U.S. consumers say they may shop for holiday gifts this weekend from Black Friday through Sunday.

Retail Analysts are saying that, while shoppers are reporting to be more selective on their purchases this eyar, they also seem to be carrying around more bags.

We're not sure if this is the sign of an economic turn around or just good retail sales. Either way, while we encourage our readers to be smart with their money during hard times, we have to admit that it's good seeing folks out shopping this weekend.
