For Denise Henderson of East Baltimore, Black Friday is all about tradition. For years, she shopped on Black Friday with her aunt.

Henderson said her aunt died last year, and now, "to me it's a memorial to her," she said while buying toys for her grandchildren at Target early Friday.

She and her daughter, Kiara Moore, had filled two carts full of toys, including half a dozen board games for family night.

She planned to continue the day's shopping at Walmart and then Old Navy.

The Thanksgiving night openings did not tempt her to get an earlier start. "I didn't feel like that was appropriate," she said. "I stayed with my family."
