OKLAHOMA CITY -

It is Black Friday -- the busiest shopping day of the long holiday weekend. 

Friday morning, the holiday shopping season is kicking into high gear after unofficially starting on the evening of Thanksgiving.

News 9 was at one of the premiere destinations for Black Friday shoppers -- Toys R Us. Just to give you an idea of how serious this day is, at 11 p.m. Friday, that store would have been open for 30 hours straight after opening their doors at 5 p.m. Thursday.

Management said they started hiring for this big day back in October, and on Thursday, people were lined up outside the doors and around the building, four hours before their doors even opened.

Management said early Friday morning business was slow and steady. However, they know it wouldn’t last for long. They took that time to straighten up the store, restock their shelves, and to catch their breath in preparation for the next wave of eager shoppers.
