SPOKANE -- Many retailers like target are extending their black Friday door buster deals into today and some throughout the weekend.

The manager at Target, Steve Asher, says it looks like that's continuing to draw the crowds. "I think this year, target had a great ad. We really had a much larger ad than we've ever had  before. We had some great door busters on there; televisions, we just couldn't keep them in. They were really hungry for the electronics. That was probably our number one area," said Asher.

Asher said he is working another full day after getting only four hours of sleep since black Friday. He said the big day exceeded expectations.

Exceeded their expectations in revenue and total number of shoppers. The line wrapped around the store yesterday. Asher says that at any given time, he had 1,000 to 1,500 shoppers inside and that more than 10,000 people went through the store yesterday.

The store sold more than 100 televisions, dozens of portable GPS devices, both at huge discounts.

Toys were the next big seller. "This Humvee, at 50 percent off, great toy. We really went through those. The kids really liked them. The other thing, board games were really good this year," said Asher.

Household goods were the area where people spent the most money. With towels and clothes going fast.

Other retailers in Northpointe Plaza reported a higher black Friday turnout than last year, including Best Buy and Staples. All of the managers say they can only hope that lasts the rest of the holiday season.

Stores plan to continue to roll out deals through Christmas Eve, but hot items are going fast.
