There are avid shoppers… and then there are avid shoppers– those who are ready to turn away from the call of sumptuous turkey feasts to score this season’s biggest savings. This year, Target was among the stores that offered this after-dinner shopping “event”. Doors at Target stores opened at 9PM, and featured amazing Black Friday deals such as a Nook Simple Touch e-reader for $49, and a Nikon L310 digital camera for $99, among other offers from electronics and toys to fashion and home décor.

Even the top honchos at Target left their own dinners early. Gregg Steinhafel, Chairman, President and CEO, Target, was at a Minneapolis, MN Target store last night to welcome the holiday shoppers.

We’ve got photos from the event below.
