To our knowledge, no shoppers were harmed during Charlottesville’s Black Friday, the annual retail revel that follows Thanksgiving in most places that have a cash register. (That’s more than might be said for Los Angeles, California, where one Wal-Mart shopper reportedly blasted a few others with pepper spray.)

Locally, Fashion Square Mall opened at 4am last Friday morning, while Target opened its doors at midnight, despite a national petition for the latter to open at 5am and allow its employees a full day with family members. Toys R Us opened at 9pm on Thanksgiving, and by midnight, Best Buy (pictured) had a long line of customers waiting to snag electronics for the holidays. Nothing beats watching the Yule Log video in high-definition.
