SHERMAN, Tex. -- Shoppers at Midway Mall got an early start Friday morning. With higher gas and energy prices, 35% of consumers overall are expected to spend less on this Black Friday than last year but stores are still cashing in.

"The way we look at it at Midway Mall, the more we have in this area, the better it is for people to stay here and shop. Everybody shop Texoma," Lana Bernardin at Midway Mall says.

The sluggish shopping season also prompted many stores to begin a sales frenzy three weeks early this year. Sales reports from Black Friday should be out sometime next week.

    Christmas is not about spending money. There are starving people in other countries that would have enjoyed what we fat Americans scraped off of our plates on Thursday. If you want to give your money to the Mall and Town Center to buy something no one wants or needs...that is fine, just remember what you scraped off of your plate into the trash last Thursday.
