LAS VEGAS -- All Friday morning thousands of people have been shopping for big deals on Black Friday.
Many shoppers were out spending all night. Shoppers at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets were buying starting very early Friday morning. The mall had 16 stores that were planning to be open for nearly two days straight.
The long lines and chilly temperatures didn't seem to dampen the mood for most shoppers.
"I went to Nike. I just bought shoes and clothes and stuff. I spent about 500 dollars," one shopper said.
"Last year was more freezing and I waited in lines longer than this, and I walked out with a really good wallet and some purses and some nice clothes," shopper Michelle Carter said.
The director of the outlet stores says the holiday shopping season seems to be creeping closer and closer to Thanksgiving as retailers try harder to be in the black.
"When you make a lot of money, you are always in the black. So, when you lose money, your sales are not what you forecast or what you expected, then you are in the red. So, Black Friday is because they are making a lot of money this time of the year. It makes up for what they do not make for the rest of the year," director Al Dos Santos said.
However, getting deals before Black Friday could mean less spending on the big shopping day. According to a Business News Daily report, consumers are enjoying being able to find great deals before Black Friday, which could mean a drop in money made on the traditional biggest shopping day of the year.
A shopper at Town Square said she is spending hundreds of dollars less.
"Probably, a $100 or $200 less because I was buying Wii games and I was able to go and I was able to find them. I wasn't sleeping out days before!" Black Friday shopper Donna Hart said.
The National Retail Federation estimates 147 million Americans will shop over the next couple of days.
