Black Friday Underway, Buyer Beware

Black Friday started early for shoppers. We'll have team coverage of the mall madness. Howard and Steve are at Pearlridge, Sarah Yoro is at the Target Salt Lake, and Malika is live at a Standup Paddleboard Sale.

Our cameras were also there for early openings at Toys 'R Us, Macy's at Ala Moana Center and the Waikele outlets.

With so many shoppers out to nab those deals, you can expect extra traffic around shopping centers today. Taizo will be following that starting at 4:30 on Sunrise.

The Occupy Honolulu protestors have shifted their focus to a big retailer on this Black Friday. Who are they targeting and why?

The rush to get the best bargains turned nasty in at least two Mainland malls. We have details on a shooting in North Carolina and a pepper spray incident. It wasn't a police officer who used it in this case, but a shopper who wanted to fend off fellow bargain hunters.

Buyer beware. Gift cards are great to give and get, but do you end up spending more when you get one?

Plus, what should you do with your Thanksgiving leftovers? Executive Chef Marc Boussarie from the Counter will whip up a gourmet turkey burger in our Sunrise kitchen.

All that plus your weekend weather forecast, coming up for you on this special Black Friday edition of Sunrise.
