Many Black Friday shoppers are choosing online shopping for the deals of the season either exclusively or in addition to shopping in-store.

One marketing expert says that is in part because shoppers want to put more research into buying a product.

"Just having the internet at your finger tips, you can get multiple sources of perspectives. Everything from the positives the negatives about the product versus the sales person. They may not be specifically on top of this one item that you're trying to really delve l far into before you buy," said Aaron Van Noy, Owner of Big Ten Web Design.

"Some people like to feel and touch that product, and we're here to help them with that," said Target Store Director Kurt Griebel.

That is why Griebel said he does not expect crowds at his store on Blairs Ferry Road dying down any time soon.

"Percentages from year to year are constantly growing," said Griebel.
