Additionally, some of these offers will only be available in store, and as you might have guessed, they'll only be available while supplies last.

Retailers started opening their doors to shoppers between 4 to 6 p.m.

People were lined up outside of retail stores such as Best Buy, Target and JC Penny's as early as 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Eve to be the first to catch the best deals.

"The turnout is clearly better than the last couple of years", said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners.

Some first-time Black Friday shoppers filled the stores, but many say it's a family affair they never miss.

"Me and my husband have a bigger place and we need a bigger TV for the living room", said Jenipher Gomes, who bought a 50-inch Samsung TV at Best Buy for $399.99.

The turkey wasn't even cold, and a line of eager shoppers was already snaking around a Northwest Side Best Buy Thursday evening.

"It's fun to people watch but it is nice to meet a lot of really neat people, people you don't know and have something in common with and we all laugh and joke around", said Dawn.

A recent study said Amazon is the top destination for people beginning their holiday shopping. This holiday season, consider giving your business to the stores that are treating their workers with some civility, and withholding it from those that are not.

All of the shoppers are looking for different things, but after the same deep discounts.

The number of customers shopping on their smartphones surged, accounting for 46 percent of the traffic on retail websites, while traffic from desktop and laptop computers declined 11 per cent and almost 6 per cent respectively, according to the data.
