People Give Thanks for 'Gray Thursday'


Many people are giving thanks for Gray Thursday.

Herberger's is packed with shoppers ready to work off their Thanksgiving meals.

Hundreds of people rushed through the doors in order to grab their door buster deals.

Doors opened at 8pm -- and shoppers say it pays.

"Definitely worth it because I was going to buy them a week ago and they were 40 something."

"Gettin' some flannels."

"Knife sets. Knife sets and sweaters actually."

"Some shoes."

"I would prefer it started at midnight instead of eight but I'm here because of boots."

Dedicated employees are ready to help customers even if it means being away from their families.

Herberger's manager, Mike Lund says opening early was the right thing to do and it's just part of business.

"I hope it doesn't get any earlier than this. I mean I had a nice Thanksgiving lunch with my family and that was nice. Knowing that I had to be here at 6:30 so I hope it doesn't get any earlier but, we'll see what happens next year," says Mike Lund, Store Manager, Herberger's.

Some of the hot items this year at Herberger's are memory foam pillows and keurigs.
