En efecto, hay tantas ganas de comprar, que el personal llega hasta a morir debido a las multitudes enfervorizadas.

"Había mucha gente aquí el año pasado. Casi no te podías ni mover en este pasillo. Este año hay menos gente pero más agresiva. Nunca había visto a la gente luchar así. Esto es la locura", cuenta una compradora al periódico The New York Times.

Holiday Shoppers Buy With Care, See More Deals - Stock Market * US * News * Story - CNBC.com

Holiday Season Gets Off to Lukewarm Start

The stores are open, the prices are marked down, but U.S. consumers spooked by the economic crisis bought sparingly at the start of the holiday shopping season.

Shoppers interviewed on Saturday said they were disappointed by the deals this Thanksgiving weekend and bet stores will offer even steeper discounts closer to Christmas -- a worrisome sign for already struggling retailers.

The discounts combined with shoppers' reluctance to spend means overall holiday sales could fall from a year ago, marking the first contraction since the National Retail Federation began tracking holiday sales in 1992, experts said.

"Consumers are being very cautious about how much money they are spending," Stacey Widlitz, a retail analyst with Pali Capital said Saturday. "I have very little confidence that the sales number will be up year-over-year," for the season.

The three-day Thanksgiving weekend can account for 10 percent of overall holiday sales and has taken on added importance this year as the country seeks a way out of its worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

Heidi Hickman, a marketing manager, was browsing at a J.C. Penney [JCP 18.99 0.14 (+0.74%) ]store in Jersey City's Newport Centre mall on Saturday but gift-buying was not on her mind.

"I got a notice there are going to be layoffs in my department," she said. "It's making me stop right now and not do anything until I find out."

The weekend's results do not always indicate how overall holiday sales will turn out, but retailers that fail to lure shoppers face the prospect of slashing prices closer to Christmas, hurting already weak profits.

After opening at pre-dawn hours Friday, department store operator Kohl's began its sales at 6 a.m. Saturday, while competitor J.C. Penney opened at 8 a.m.

Penney said shopping on Friday was strong as consumers sought deals on practical gifts, like sweaters. But it did not release sales figures for the weekend, saying the economic environment was too volatile.

Holiday sales growth was already forecast to hit its lowest level in nearly two decades and retailers have been slashing prices for weeks to salvage the season. In a highly promotional battle to attract shoppers, retailers like Kmart opened on Thanksgiving day, while others began sales at midnight.

America's Research Group's Britt Beemer said Friday he saw shoppers carrying 25 to 40 percent fewer bags this year.

"If the item was there, they bought it. If it wasn't there, they left," said Beemer, calling this year's customer a "hit-and-run shopper."

PRICES WILL FALL

Alice Hughes, 45, made the rounds in Maryland Friday, stopping at a Target [TGT 33.76 -1.37 (-3.9%) ], Sears [SHLD 36.25 -0.90 (-2.42%) ], J.C. Penney and Macy's [M 7.42 0.39 (+5.55%) ], buying items like a treadmill and leather coats for herself and her daughter. But she was not impressed with the prices and expected them to fall closer to Christmas.

"I think they're playing," she said of retailers. "They tell you they're marking down, but they're really not."

Many shoppers were only buying gifts for children and said they would find other ways to celebrate with adult relatives and friends.

Consumer electronics, toys and clothing were in highest demand at the start of the weekend, according to the National Retail Federation.

Amazon.com [AMZN 42.70 -1.26 (-2.87%) ] said Apple's [AAPL 92.67 -2.33 (-2.45%) ] iPod touch, which has a touch-sensitive screen, was its top selling electronics item Black Friday morning, while the Wii Fit, for Nintendo's Wii video game console, was its most popular video game.

Widlitz expects discount behemoth Wal-Mart [WMT 55.88 -0.81 (-1.43%) ] to win shoppers this holiday because of its low prices.

At a Wal-Mart store in Columbia, Maryland, Friday morning, the parking lot was full at 7:30 a.m. and customers stood in line 10 shopping carts deep to purchase flat-screen televisions, $8 jeans and $4 pajamas.

The frenzied bargain-hunting took a somber turn on Friday when a worker at Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, New York, died in a stampede by shoppers who broke down doors to enter the store at 5 a.m. New York time.

Meanwhile, mid-tier retailers like department store operator Macy's and specialty chains AnnTaylor Stores [ANN 4.49 0.02 (+0.45%) ] are fighting to keep customers and eke out profits.

At Ann Taylor's LOFT chain Friday, the retailer was offering 40 percent off its sale prices, and an additional 20 percent off on purchases rung up before noon.

In a sign of how much consumers have put the brakes on spending, November retail sales at U.S. chain stores open at least a year could fall 2.4 percent, or 7.1 percent excluding Wal-Mart, compared with 4 percent growth last year, based on analysts' forecasts compiled by Thomson Reuters.

Early data shows strong Black Friday shopping

Preliminary sales figures show stronger-than-expected Black Friday; sales up 3 percent


CHICAGO (AP) -- The holiday shopping season got off to a surprisingly solid start, according to data released Saturday by a research firm. But the sales boost during the post-Thanksgiving shopathon came at the expense of profits as the nation's retailers had to slash prices to attract the crowds in a season that is expected to be the weakest in decades.

Sales during the day after Thanksgiving rose 3 percent to $10.6 billion, according to preliminary figures released Saturday by ShopperTrak RCT Corp., a Chicago-based research firm that tracks sales at more than 50,000 retail outlets. Last year, shoppers spent about $10.3 billion on the day after Thanksgiving, dubbed Black Friday because it was historically the sales-packed day when retailers would become profitable for the year.

But this year, many observers were expecting consumers to spend more time browsing than buying, amid contractions in consumer spending and growing fears about economic uncertainty and trouble in the global financial markets.

"Under these circumstances, it's truly amazing when you think about all the news that led into the holiday season, it certainly appears that consumers are willing to spend more than most expected," said ShopperTrak co-founder Bill Martin. "Everybody wants value for their dollar, so we saw a tremendous response to the discounts."

While it isn't a predictor of overall holiday season sales, Black Friday is an important barometer of people's willingness to spend during the holidays. Last year, it was the biggest sales generator of the season while the Thanksgiving shopping weekend of Friday through Sunday accounted for about 10 percent of overall holiday sales.

Still, experts, who predict this year's overall holiday shopping period will be the weakest in decades thanks to an overall contraction in spending, caution that this year's sales growth may be hard to sustain.

Also complicating matters is a shorter buying season -- 27 days between Black Friday and Christmas -- instead of 32 last year.

Across the country, sales in the South were up 3.4 percent from last year while they climbed 2.6 percent in the Northeast as shoppers began scouring store aisles at midnight hoping to snag the best selection on early morning specials, some as much as 70 percent off. Elsewhere, sales rose 3 percent in the Midwest and 2.7 percent in the West.

Patty Saal, 60, of Mogadore, Ohio, began her Black Friday shopping at 5 a.m. when she and her daughters went to a Sam's Club to purchase iPods.

"We're doing fine," she said.

Fifth-grade teacher Daphna Stepen, 42, spent Black Friday hunting for deals inside Macy's and at the Limited Too clothing store and headed out again Saturday. The Chicago resident said she was surprised by the discounts as well as how many coupons she'd received from stores, which helped her save even more money on already marked-down items.

"You can get almost 40 percent off stuff if you work the coupons," she said.

Separately on Saturday, J.C. Penney Co. Inc. said business was strong in its sites across the country as customers responded to sales. Some of the department store's best sellers were smaller electronic gadgets and practical gifts, such as sweaters, boots, coats and luggage.

But the chain said it wouldn't provide specific sales figures.

"In light of the challenging and volatile economic climate, and shifts in this year's retail calendar, we don't believe that reporting sales data for any one day (or weekend), including Black Friday, would provide a meaningful barometer of our business," the Plano, Texas company said in a statement released Saturday afternoon.

AP Retail Writers Anne D'Innocenzio in New York and Emily Fredrix in Aurora, Ohio contributed to this report.
