7:12 am
because we always hear about the brick and mortar retailers that are having a hard time. but they're being smart in that they're trying to lure us in with the thing they have an advantage over. you're able to go in and see and touch and feel somet, tr on. but, the cost of bringing people into your store has actually started to rise. and as a result, companies like macy's or kohl's or jc penney or gap, they are under quite a bit of pressure, at least their stock prices this year. >> what are they doing to try to bring those people in? because you see the pop-up stores and hotels using these models to try to get people to buy their product. >> it's called experiential marketing. they are trying to bring you in with an experience. they're going to say we are going to have a wine and cheese tasting or be creative and say you want to try a parka and those boots on? we're going to have a cold room you can try them non that room. >> that's crazy. >> and they're also being really smart to combine online with brick and mortar.
7:13 am
order online, pick it up at the store and there you can try it on. >> what about this notion that we've been hearing that brick and mortar is dead or in the process of dying? >> okay, so what you will hear throughout this week towcy gits, 14%, 15% from a year ago. actual sales total, it's a much lower growth rate. so cyber is growing at a much more rapid rate. however, brick and mortar still accounts for most shopping in this country. about 90% in brick and mortar. that includes -- >> 90? >> well that includes car dealerships, so we have to put that in there. it's important to realize brick and mortar is not dead. this is called multichannel experience for retail and i really want to tell people check your prices outonline, then go to the store. >> we have breaking news from london where police are investigating an incident a short time ago. several people were hurt in a
7:14 am
stabbing in the london bridge area in the heart of brfiveed o district where a terror attack two years ago killed eight >> reporter: good morning. police here in london said they were called just before 2:00 p.m. local time to a stabbing near london bridge in central london. that's just over an hour ago now. they say they have detained one man and several people were injured. the reuters news agency is reporting that the police have said that a man was shot and we've seen video from the scene appearing to show a police officer shooting a man on the ground. however, there's no official confirmation of that detail at this stage. the attack on london bridge back in june 2017 was isis inspired. we don't know the motivations behind today's violence. >> thank you. fire in northern ohio has

8:01 am
talks with the taliban are back on. >> the taliban wants to make a deal. we'll see if they make a deal. if they do, they do, if they >> about 200 people just rushed through the doors here at best buy but some black friday shoppers say it comes down to good old holiday trad. >> >> i hear you talk about a potential recession so why are people spending? >> the economy slowed down but the key point is that it could be good. >> this is a eye-hopping storm. i mean historic storm. look at that intense and focused moisture. >> crazy finish from the egg bowl. >> it is caught. it is a touchdown! >> ole miss scores with four seconds left. >> but then he lifts his leg like a dog in the end zone and so they call a point and that pushes it back. >> it is no good. >> pretending to be a dog using the restroom cost the team a football game. oh, my god.
8:02 am
>> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. >> that what heard around the world had michelle miller saying wow. >> it is intense. they mean be nice. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump is back in the u.s. following his first ever visit to afghanistan on thanksgiving. he arrived in palm beach, florida, aboard air force one this morning after his top secret trip there yesterday. he showed up unannounced at bagram air station and sat down with the men and women in uniform. >> he met with the president of afghanistan and revealed the u.s. has restarted peace talks with the taliban three months after he shut them down and will reduce the number of troops serving in afghanistan from 12,000. >> we are bringing it down substantially and down in a number that is very -- it is a
8:03 am
good number. and we're going to stay until such time as we have a deal or we have total -- [ inaudible ]. >> the president did not say how long the renewed peace talks have been going on. usa today washington bureau chief susan page joins us now. good morning, susan. >> good morning. >> i just want to know, just getting your expert opinion on these things. when you hear the president not only wanting to reduce troops, but also making sure that we resume talks with the taliban, will in likely lead to any actual peace deal? >> i think it is hard to know. but this is a -- the president's effort to fulfill a promise he made during the last campaign, the 2016 campaign to end america's prapgs or reduce the presence in what he called endless wars. he's been trying to do that for sometime. we learned three months ago he planned a big event at camp
8:04 am
david with taliban leadership and that fell through in the wake of violence in the region. but he clearly wants to get this restarted. we want that hear more from the taliban about whether they confirm these talks are serious. and also from the afghan government on their view of this. they have previously insisted on a cease-fire before talks. that hasn't happened yet. >> right. i want to switch gears quickly here. former navy secretary richard spencer had a lot to say, slammed the president when he was ousted in reference to the president's involvement in the navy s.e.a.l. convicted of war crimes. were you surprised by spencer's reaction and some of the comments that he's made? >> man, he used words like unprecedented and shocking to describe the commander-in-chief and said president trump doesn't understand what it is like to be in the military. these are words pentagon leaders do not use about the president of the united states during normal times. this is an ouster that reflections the tension behind the scenes between the pentagon
8:05 am
and the white house that is rarely revealed. this was really an insight into something going on that is quite unusual. >> switching gears now, susan, to the eyes that will be watching the house judiciary committee and its hearing on the impeachment inquiry. what do we expect to get out of this? >> well, a lot of things to watch for. by sunday the white house needs to say whether the president or his lawyers will participate in the judiciary committee hearings. the house intelligence committee is finishing up its report on its impeachment veeinvestigatio and we're seeing the first hearing on wednesday. this is moving so fast. we expect a vote by christmas over impeaching the president. another historic term in this really unprecedented presidency we've been watching for three years. >> and just one quick question on this, mick mulvaney and john
8:06 am
bolton, both absent and weren't called or didn't make it to testify. was that a mistake on democrats' part? >> well democrats have been trying to pursue getting testimony from people like the secretary of state and the acting white house chief of staff and the white house had a stonewall strategy. the democrats have gone to court and won some court cases but they take a long time and appeals by the white house and administration to the higher courts i think the house democrats decided this is not going to work and not able to talk to these officials in a timely fashion but they wanted more firsthand testimony about the president's role in this issue over ukraine. >> susan, i'm told we have 30 seconds left. in to 20 does michael bloomberg have a chance? >> he has a strategy not to play in the early primaries and come in on super-tuesday. maybe that will work.
8:07 am
he has a lot of money. but this is a strategy that didn't work for rudy giuliani or jerry brown when he tried it backs 14illion americans are expected to go shopping today. i don't think we are any of them. >> online maybe. >> online maybe. everybody is looking for black friday deals. many people who will shop will face the long lines and crowded aisles. some people went shopping overnight while millions of others headed out yet after thanksgiving dinner. nikki battiste is in a best buy in paramus, new jersey. >> reporter: 200 people just rushed in. many are here for the deal of the day. some tvs are up to 50% and some laptops up to 50% off and we saw one for $200 if you could believe that. u.s. shoppers are expected to spend $7.5 billion but these

8:09 am
here. >> snow, rain, blizzard conditions and gusts 40, 50 miles per hour. when this slammed into the west coast and had hurricane-force wind gusts and fornia in terms of pressure. can you believe that? the storm is making its way through the southwest and it is a strong moisture feed of the tropical moisture moving into the west and crashing into the mountains and the air is being big thunderstorms and flooding rain and heavy snow and powder in the mountains. you could see the jet stream rounding the corner. look at all of the red hours indicating that strong focused wind. that is today. tomorrow blizzard conditions in the upper midwest. severe storms in the southeast. this all moves toward the east and it turns into a snowstorm for the northeast and some places will get one to two feet away from the coast in the northeast, guys. >> a lot of snow, jeff.

welcome back. this morning for the first time we're hearing from two washington state mothers who helped police catch a killer in a case that was unsolved for more than two decades. it was exactly 30 years ago on the day after thanksgiving that 18-year-old mandy stabbing disappeared. she had gone for a jog. her body was later found in a river. at that time, police had no good leads or even suspects. and the killer remained unknown for about 24 years. as peter vanzant reports, a conversation between the moms at a water park is what pushed this investigation forward. this is the south fork -- >> reporter: detective ron peterson made a horrific discovery in november of 1989. >> she was floating lightly. when i rolled it over, it was a shock because she looked like my
8:18 am
daughter. >> reporter: the young woman was 17-year-old mandy stavic who disappeared after going out jogging the day after thanksgiving. detective kevin bowie was just a rookie at that time. how do you think she was abducted? >> by weapon, that's what they used to control her. i believe it was a gun. >> reporter: dna evidence at the scene suggested mandy had been sexually assaulted. investigators believe she was then knocked out and placed in the river to drown. there was a killer out there. >> yeah. so much unknown. >> reporter: despite an intensive police investigation, the killer would remain unknown for 24 years. then in 2013, there was a break in the case. >> amazingly enough, it was two women talking in a water park that gave us the break in this case. >> reporter: as marilee anderson and heather backstrom watched
8:19 am
their children play, the case came up. >> i just kind of turned to marilee and said, well, i am sure i know who killed her. >> and turned to her and said, oh, i do, too. and i just said that i -- i knew that it was tim. that it was tim bass. >> tim bass had lived just down the road from mandy. both marilee and heather had creepy encounters with him around the time of mandy's murder. but they had never come forward with their suspicions. >> to accuse someone of something that we don't know for sure is a little scary. >> reporter: after hearing each other's stories, they decided to talk to police who then focused on tim bass. but authorities needed dna evidence to prove their case, and a co-worker, kim wagner, came up with a plan to get it for them. she watched bass at work for months until he threw away a can

8:24 am
>> prince william went on to say men are less likely to talk about mental health than women, and he is trying to stop that stigma. you know, the prince has been quite vocal about his own struggle with mental health from years where he served as an air ambulance pilot in eastern england. >> this is something both prince william and prince harry share, a real, you know, mission about. they believe it stems from, you know, losing their mother. but it goes beyond that in so many different ways. they want to help as many people as possible deal with it. >> from so young -- >> i was thinking how proud their mom would be. >> yes, indeed. there are so many new movies at this time of year, it can be hard to sort of keep up and make a choice. ahead, we'll bring you a guide to the biggest films coming out this holiday season, including at least one major oscar contender you can already watch at home. that would be "the irishman." that's right. i just got it.
