BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - It’s a chilly start to the holiday shopping season in North Dakota.

Temperatures were in the low teens, single digits and in the west below zero as shoppers headed out to the stores on Black Friday to land some deals.

The day after Thanksgiving is generally considered the kickoff to the holiday shopping season. It’s typically the biggest shopping day of the year - the National Retail Federation expects nearly 100 million people to shop.

Valerie Bartsh traveled to Bismarck from Watford City with her two adult daughters. She said: “It’s mother-daughter time, and it’s savings time.”

Carolina Andrade drove from Sisseton, South Dakota, to Fargo to shop. She said she usually doesn’t go shopping on Black Friday, but good deals brought her out this year.
