OKLAHOMA CITY -- The weather didn't stop folks from hitting the stores Friday. Retailers across the metro continued their attempts to pry open the wallets of reluctant shoppers with huge after-Christmas deals.

Dozens of shoppers rushed in as soon as the doors opened.

"This is my very first time," shopper Debbie Mason said. "This is fun."

Many retailers dubbed the day after Christmas as the 'second Black Friday'. With low record sales this year, businesses are trying to boost sales with deep discounts.

"We got money for Christmas, so we're going to spend it early," shopper Janet Sanders said.

Many early birds bought into the big bargains.

"I was happy with all the prices," shopper Sue Anthony said.

The most popular buy were holiday decor to save for next year's Christmas.

Many bargain hunters are planning ahead of schedule.

"Looking for some gifts for next year, as long as I remember to get them out of the attic," shopper Chuck Hensley said.

Everywhere shoppers look, 70 percent off here, half off there, add to that a coupon to get more bang for the buck.

To get the best bargains, be sure to check out coupons online and in newspapers for more discounts.
