Those early hours and amazing deals paid off!

According to the National Retail Federation, Black Friday sales jumped 6.6% this year to $52 billion with the average shopper spending $400.

The NRF also expects strong sales from Cyber Monday, which ended up being 2010's biggest shopping day.

Shoppers Start To Line Up For Black Friday

These people never cease to amaze us.

A Florida woman has already pitched a tent outside of a Tampa Best Buy, making her the first person to line up for Black Friday.

Christine Orta's been camped out since the 16th because "you can't beat some of the deals they have on plasmas, flat screens and laptops." She adds: "We're all students; you've got to pinch a penny; it's affordable right now."

Guess she hasn't heard about that little thing called Cyber Monday.

Target Employees Protest Black Friday Hours

Filed under: Business BlitzTargetRetail TherapyWalmart

Target employees are up in arms over next week's super early Black Friday hours.

Employees are pissed that the retailer is kick-starting the holiday shopping season by opening their doors at midnight rather than the usual 4 or 5am because it cuts into their family time.

Anthony Hardwick, a cart attendant at a Target in Omaha, started an online petition asking the company to push back the hours, but we doubt it'll persuade Target.

According to spokeswoman Molly Snyder the time change is due to consumer desire, adding:

"We have heard from our guests that they want to shop Target following their Thanksgiving celebrations rather than only having the option of getting up in the middle of the night."

It also doesn't help that competitors like Walmart opening at 10pm, either.

What do U think of all this???
