Black Friday mayhem includes shooting, employee revolt as swarms of shoppers kick off the frenzy
U.S. shoppers kept up a two-day buying marathon Friday that began when more than a dozen major retailers opened on the Thanksgiving holiday, a break with tradition that drew protests from workers.
Crowds of cheering shoppers pushed through the doors at the flagship Macy’s Herald Square in New York City when it opened Thursday night. About 15,000 shoppers were at the store right before the doors opened, estimated Terry Lundgren, CEO, president and chairman of the department store chain.
Across the country, the frenzy continued overnight and through the morning of Black Friday, which until recently had been considered the official start to the holiday shopping season and the biggest shopping day of the year. It was named Black Friday because that was traditionally when retailers turned a profit, or moved out of the red and into the black.
But in the past few years, retailers have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night. They’ve also moved to discounting in early November, instead of waiting until Black Friday. (Photo: Patrick T. Fallon/Bloomberg)

Twenty injured after woman pepper sprays L.A. Black Friday shoppers in act of ‘competitive shopping’Twenty people, including children, received minor injuries after a  woman reportedly pepper sprayed other shoppers at a Los Angeles-area  Walmart store on Thursday as late-night Black Friday sales began in the  United States and Canada.
Calling it an act of “competitive shopping,” a fire captain told the Los Angeles Times the woman had intentionally taken the pepper spray with her to the  department store in Porter Ranch to get the edge on her fellow shoppers.
She used the pepper spray in several areas of the store, Los Angeles Fire Capt. James Carson told the Times.
