ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thanksgiving seems to be quite the kick-off to Black Friday sales. We took our cameras to the streets to find several stores open, filled with shoppers.

They were trying to snag early Christmas gifts. Some of those stores included, K-Mart-which is traditionally open on Thanksgiving, Walmart, Toys "R" Us, Sears, and CVS.

One shopper we spoke to just couldn't turn down the bargains.

" I found some wonderful Christmas videos and they've got something for all my grand kids," said K-Mart customer, Ellen Kibbee.

If you want to start your shopping early, Target opens at 4:00 a.m., K-Mart at 5:00 a.m. and Walmart is 24 hours.
