Millions celebrated Thanksgiving across the United States and the Triangle on Thursday. After the meal, many turned their focus to shopping.
Families enjoyed a meal while many restaurants were open for others to enjoy something to eat. There were also numerous locations across the Triangle that provided meals to those less fortunate.
After those meals, many hit the stores for shopping on Thursday while others prepared for Black Friday shopping.
WRAL's Rosalia Fodera reported places like the Best Buy at Cary Crossroads opened at 5 p.m. on Thursday. Lots of other businesses were either open on Thursday for shopping or were taking part in Black Friday like most retailers.
The Cary store said it was expecting around 5,000 to 7,000 people to walk in the store for Black Friday.
Thankful for Thanksgiving
As you enjoyed your Thanksgiving meal with your family, it is worth remembering that thousands across the area may have had to go without. WRAL's Mark Boyle found volunteers at the Raleigh Rescue Mission making sure those individuals and families were helped and enjoyed a good meal.
