Distance no problem for Ala. Black Friday shoppers

Posted: Updated:

Distance was no object for Alabama shoppers looking for the best Black Friday deals.

The Sprinkle family traveled almost 200 miles from the Mobile County town of Coden to Montgomery on a trip that combined three favorite family activities - football, hunting and shopping.

For 55-year-old John Sprinkle of Coden the shopping was fine as he and family members found most of the items on their lists as they strolled from store to store at Montgomery's Eastdale Mall.

The shopping was mixed in between some hunting and plans Saturday by some family members to attend the football game between Alabama and Auburn.

The Sprinkle family was among thousands that visited shopping areas across the state Friday.

Traffic was heavy around the massive Riverchase Galleria mall in suburban Birmingham.
