On the 12th hour of shopping, Christi Fore took a break.

The Edmond woman slumped on a bench outside The Children's Place at The Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City, a cold wind helping to keep her awake as she tried to remember all places she'd been.


“We started at Walmart at 10:30 p.m. — it was a nightmare — then to Kohl's, Target, J.C. Penney,” she said. “My job was to get in line while they shopped.”

Fore's shopping party included an exchange student from Denmark. “She just thinks it's nuts, that we are crazy Americans!” Fore said.

OU student Shaopei Zhang and his father, Jiyi Zhang a native of China, drove from Ardmore to the outlet mall.

After buying two shirts at Brooks Brothers, the younger man was ready to leave. “We've never shopped on Black Friday before,” he said. “It's really hectic and stressful.”

But the elder Zhang was impressed with the prices — they got $89 shirts on sale for $29 each — and thought they might shop a bit longer.

“There is nothing like this in China,” he said.

Better prices this year?

At Kohl's in Edmond, Candy Biggers, of Warr Acres, was buying a cashmere sweater on sale for $35.
