While many shoppers headed to stores last night, the official morning of Black Friday was not as busy as you would think.
But as Mechell Dixon found out, some people looking for those doorbuster deals from last night were actually out of luck.
Every year the holiday shopping season kicks off with some items that many people simply must have for themselves or for someone else as a present.
And at some stores that phrase "the early bird gets the worm" was very true.
Target prides itself on allowing shoppers to expect more and pay less.
And on Black Friday managers say customers got just that.
Items workers had trouble keeping on the shelves included Keurig coffer makers but there were other popular items the public focused on.
"TV's and electronics were huge. We sold a lot of small appliances and toys, obviously, were great for us. But, electronics is where it's at," says Kerry Beaver, Target store leader at Target.
Electronics are plentiful at Best Buy but managers say that changed a bit when the store opened on Thanksgiving night.
"The midnight mystery doorbuster that we had this year was the Xbox 1. We got some extra ones in this year. So it was really interesting to see how fast those went," says Miles Henderson, a member of the Best Buy Geek Squad.
In fact, some Black Friday deals were so hot, they're no longer in stock at rock bottom prices.
"The top two items that we're pretty much out of stock on are gonna be the Dell laptop that we had on sale. I think it was $199 and then our Ipad 2's that were on sale for $299. Those were the ones that went pretty fast," Henderson says.
While popular items went fast, managers say they're not completely gone from some stores.
"As we get replenished after Black Friday, we continue to have great sales each week and maybe a little different than Black Friday," Beaver explains.
Prices for many Black Friday deals run through tomorrow but managers say if you can't find laptops, tablets, XBox gaming systems and other hot items in stores this year you may be able to find them online.
And if they're out of stock there, managers say chances are, they will get them soon but the prices will not be the same as on Gray Thursday or Black Friday.
