6:05 am
you've been strategic what you're purchasing. are these things you need, things you want or things you just have to have? >> both things i need and have to have and the sales are great. >> what about christmas presents, is any of this any christmas present? what did you get for me? >> nothing. >> reporter: what did you get for your family then? >> we got a couple of shoes and like a couple of clothes and we're still about to shop. we're still trying to pick some stores that have good discounts. >> you thought you'd be out of here like an hour ago. this is not really breaking your way. >> no, it is not at all. i'm just here, you know, trying to be with the baby here, trying to get us some more clothes so she can enjoy herself in the winter and not be freezing and get sick. >> reporter: exactly. thank you so much, have a great holiday, you guys and good luck. by the way, i need to show you this, this is how clever they are. they commandeered a child's
6:06 am
wagon. usually there would be a baby in here through there's nothing. oh, there's no baby. exactly. they're staying there's a baby, we'll go with there's a baby. it's interesting because we thought the mall really would be a lot more crowded but if you come over here, you can see it really isn't. it's 9:00 and it's pretty modest, it's pretty moderate the flow of the crowd. 6:00 it was pretty empty so anyway, people probably come out once they wake up a little bit late because it's a holiday for so many people. carol? >> that's because there are so many sane people in new jersey! deborah feyerick, thanks so much. you would expect long lines and short tempers on black friday but you don't expect the national guard, but that's exactly what shoppers saw outside ferguson, missouri, last night, in the wake of destructive riots and protests the soldiers were standing guard outside a walmart in st. louis, which is just reopening right now.

6:08 am
several walmarts in the area last night, not just at wal martz but also at a target in brentwood, about 30 minutes from where we are in ferguson, demonstrators showing up there shouting "shut it down for michael brown" shouting "hands up, don't shoot," calls for boycotts have been spreading all throughout social media, wanting to have this economic impact on black friday, but in terms of what we've been seeing out here so far, none of the targets that were targeted, none of the wal martz that were targeted were shut down but demonstrators saying they want to make sure their cause stays alive. they want to have an economic impact as well as a social and political one. carol? >> i'm just curious, how many businesses are open along west fluorescent today? >> reporter: that one section that was when we saw so many businesses burned and looted, west fluorescent, that particular section still shut
6:09 am
down and possibly for serl more days and the story is not just about major businesses, carol, businesses such as walmart and target but there are a number of small businesses that have already been economically impacted, some small business owners questioning if they'll be able to reopen at all. >> all right, jason carroll reporting live from ferguson this morning. the thanksgiving holiday was a somber one for the family of michael brown, just sat down for their first holiday dinner without their son. this image showing michael brown sr., his family plus an empty chair for the late son, michael brown, going viral on twitter. the caption include includeincludes #stole includes #stolenlife, the campaign launched by ferguson action. the group wants to show the impact on families who lose a loved one due to police violence. police in austin, texas, happened around 2:00 in the
6:10 am
morning a gunman was shot and killed by police. investigators discovered the suspect had what looked like an ied and that's when the bomb squad was called in. >> at that time they noticed what appeared to be an improvised explosive device in the vehicle so acting prudently, the officers pulled the suspect away across the street to where they could assess, get better assessment of the subject. the officers noticed that the subject was wearing some type of vest and at that point, you know, being the fact that we were dealing with possible improvised explosive devices, they backed away from the suspect. >> no one was hurt in the incident but the bomb squad units are still searching the area to make sure the gunman didn't leave behind any explosives. still to come in "the newsroom," hundreds of thousands in the dark and cold across the northeast as heavy thanksgiving day snow wipes out power lines. we'll talk about that next.

6:15 am
erupted was more than 20 years ago. here the united states snow and ice caused a massive pile-up between buffalo and niagara falls. more than 50 vehicles were towed off a bridge, at least a dozen people were taken to hospitals. the thanksgiving day snowstorm also knocked out power to thousands of customers across new england. outages were so widespread crews were called in from canada to help. jennifer gray is at the cnn center in atlanta. good morning. >> good morning to you, carol. the buffalo area just can't catch a break, can they? we are looking at more snow showers pushing into the great lakes areas as we go through the next couple of days but that's really going to be the only hangup in the northeast. we have cold air still in place, high pressure in control across the southeast, it is sunny across the rockies but that's going to change even as we go through the next couple of days. current temperatures very cold in the northern plains, 13 degrees in minneapolis, 22 in chicago. we'll warm up to only 35 degrees in chicago this afternoon, temperatures cold across the
6:16 am
northeast, 49 in atlanta, but a nice warmup in store for the south and the northeast, over the next couple of days, new york city will be close to 60 degrees by monday, atlanta close to 70 on monday, however we stay very cold still in the midwest and the northern plains. i want to mention the west, though, because we have some big time rains coming in to portions of california, and oregon. we also have winter weather advisories and winter storm watches and warnings in place across places in montana and we are looking at possibility of quite a bit of rain, 4 to 6 inches across northern california into oregon. also seeing snow in some of the higher elevations. carol, big changes coming across the country over the next couple of days. >> we'll be ready. jennifer, thanks so much. black friday frenzy is not limited to the united states this year. this was the scene in london where the dash for discounts soon gave way to pushing and shoving. four hours north in manchester at least two people were placed
6:17 am
under arrest. one woman was injured by a falling television in separate incidents. police were also called to seven different department stores around manchester, england, overnight. cnn's jim bolden joins me from london. i don't get this. they don't have thanksgiving in england. >> it's extraordinary, there's no holiday today, no holiday yesterday but it started with amazon and apple thinking maybe we should have deep discounts in friday in the uk and see if it catches on. this year all the british retailers decided it was a really good idea. i'm not sure they thought it this morning. take a look. rampaging shoppers, all in the search of black friday bargains. scenes which until now had been reserved for the united states. but this american tradition is taking hold in the uk, as black
6:18 am
friday becomes a critical day in the british retail calendar. there is one big difference, though, it's not a holiday week in britain. >> black friday makes sense in the u.s., it follows a national holiday, thanksgiving. it happens on a day when most people are off from work and a chance to kickstart the christmas spending, whereas here in the uk, black friday is just any other friday, people are still working, they're not necessarily out in the shops, but it is becoming more and more popular. >> reporter: and it's not just purely american brands. it was started here by the likes of apple and amazon, now retailers like tesco, john lewis, hoots, all have black friday deals and online, it's not just amazon. etailer shop direct is bracing for a 50% jump in sales on friday and says it's invested more than $1.5 million to upgrade its computer systems just to handle this friday. one of the big uk retailers
6:19 am
pushing out this friday is asda owned by walmart and using its walmart connections to try to offer huge discounts. last year, asda ran short of big screen tvs and now relying on the parent company to fill the shelves as opposed to local suppliers to sell a lot more 40 inch l.e.d.s for around $200. >> all of the tvs selling black friday have been sourced from relationships we've got with walmart and the branded suppliers or directly from walmart factories. today we'lle is well over 20,000 televisions in black friday today. >> reporter: this trend flies in the face of the time-honored british tradition of the january sales. >> we need to ensure that we can save them money before christmas rather than discounting them after christmas when people already spent their money. >> reporter: and it all appears to be working. >> the discount this is year are deeper and more widespread, and also there's a lot more
6:20 am
advertising behind the black friday event. >> reporter: it doesn't hurt in great britain people get paid monthly so this black friday sees the last check before christmas, an early present for retailers perhaps. one difference, carol, i think is maybe the cheerleaders, i'm not sure you have cheerleaders in the target or walmart of the u.s. of the 20,000 tvs they have ready to sell, they sold 8,000 in the first hour so i'm afraid they might start running out in a few hours. >> i send my apologize across the pond jim, i do. >> it's one import i didn't want to see here, trust me. >> i understand completely. jim boulden, many thanks. still to come in "the newsroom," a major power shift in north korea raising questions, just weeks after kim jong-un resur fazed, his younger sister is taking a bigger role in the family's secretive regime.

6:32 am
shopping. >> and a few things in shoppers' favor, lower gas prices puts a little more money in our pockets we can dish out to the stores, also you're seeing stores really put some heavy discounting out there, i can't pass up a good sale especially when they're deep discounting 50% or more off of the items. what's different from this year compared to last we're getting good weather at least for this big shopping weekend of athe year. remember the polar vortex? >> yes, who could forget. >> that kept a lot of shoppers inside, and there was a threat of the federal government shutting down last year. lot of us may have forgotten that, that weighed on spending last year. interestingly enough i went into a target in new york city, it was empty. here's what may be happening, that black friday creep where we see the stores opening on thanksgiving, macy's, for example, the ceo said this morning that 15,000 people were waiting outside of its flagship store at 5:00 last night, so he says as much as we are sort of
6:33 am
creating the criticism about the stores like macy's, like walmart opening up early on thanksgiving, the ceo says there is demand and it's interesting to see who is shopping in macy's. >> there's demand at certain stores, right? deb feyerick said in a new jersey mall, it's pretty empty. >> the target this morning, in east harlem, was empty, which is pretty shocking. but people are interested. i want to you hear what the macy's ceo said earlier this morning. >> there's just been a steady flow of customers. it's interesting, because the customer we had last night in this particular store at 6:00 p.m. was very different when i did my circle of stores and came back here at midnight, it was a totally different customer. we went from international, diverse crowd opening the doors to a very young millenial aged crowd at midnight and beyond. >> so it looks like they went out there shopping a little early. >> you said that lots of
6:34 am
millenials. i'm not saying he's lying or anything but it's just hard to believe. >> well they've got the money to spend and want to get those deals. >> they do? >> the national retail federation is really having high hopes for this year saying that retail sales will increase 4% compared to last year to $617 billion this year. >> i'll lay something else by you. i interviewed a guy named mike, camping out at the best buy in wisconsin for the past six years with five of his friends every year. he notices lessening of the crowds year after year. he thinks the tradition is dying. >> and many people do say that black friday is outdated, because even you just look at this week, i don't know about you, but i got inundated with e-mails from stores offering deep discounting their black friday wednesday was happening earlier this week so you're seeing that cut into black friday sales, the internet obviously. you're seeing the thursday on thanksgiving the stores opening
6:35 am
up, that's eating into black friday sales. i think in the end people who traditionally go out and shop on black friday enjoy the social experience, that's their tradition. i don't think you'll see them pull back. i think you may see the shopping may be spread out a little bit over a week instead of just one day. >> i got you. let's talk about hot items because there is one hot item i'm surprised by, tennis shoes. >> oh gosh, you're surprised by it? if my son catches wind of it he'll want the air jordan 6 retros which are sold out in five minutes i think at dick's. there are a lot of other hot items, gopros are really big seller this is year, beatz head phones, tablet also sell well despite the fact they haven't been selling well all year and tvs. may not be big sellers but you get a pretty good price on them. >> alison, thanks so much, i appreciate it. checking other top stories at 35 minutes past the hour, president obama celebrated his favorite holiday thanksgiving with phone calls to u.s. troops. he spoke with rep.s from each
