ST. LOUIS (AP) - Bargain-hunters venturing out for Black Friday shopping around St. Louis aren’t getting much cooperation from the weather.

Dreary, rainy conditions prevailed around that area where traffic at several malls, and discount and big-box stores canvassed by The Associated Press was noticeably thin.

At the South County Center mall, sisters Eileen Kroll and Maureen Ackles sat bleary-eyed on a bench outside a Bath & Body Works shop. Both women had been up for the past 24 hours but showed no signs of fatigue, having already between to three Wal-Marts, two Targets and a Kohl’s department store since midnight.

Ackels already had bought a Michael Kors sport coat bought for $80, saving $215. Video games they purchased at Walmart - typically $60 apiece - were more than half that at $27.
