For earliest shoppers, Black Friday holds bargains, pains

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) – They came early, and they clutched coffee.
Frenzied shoppers spread out across New Jersey this morning, looking for bargains.
At a Toys R Us in Cherry Hill, 24-year-old Auis Santana shopped with his girlfriend. In his shopping cart, he had three of You and Me Baby dolls.
At twenty-one dollars and ninety-five cents apiece, he described the purchases as a “good deal.”
But not everyone had such a good shopping experience.
Julie Burdick lined up at Toys R Us at 2AM, looking for the 10th anniversary edition of the Tickle Me Elmo doll.
Before the store opened at five a-m, an employee broke the news to her that the Sesame Street toy was scheduled to be delivered at noon.
