Retailers are really happy with Black Friday this year, especially with the overwhelming crowds that took advantage of those midnight store openings. As a result, it looks like they are here to stay, as least for the foreseeable future.

On the home theater and consumer electronics front, 40% of purchases when to consumer electronics items, with the TVs and Blu-ray Disc players being the big winners. Sales of Blu-ray Disc players were up about 37 percent over last year.

However, will the strong Black Friday carry over thoughout the rest of the Holiday Shopping Season? For more details on the Black Friday sales numbers, read the reports from Home Media Magazine, TwinCities.com, and CNN.
