and her daughter went to South Coast Plaza on Black Friday to shop for "the men."
"We like quality, but we like it at a good price," Flecher said.
Shopping on the biggest retail day of the year is also a tradition for Dannette Clements.
Every year, Clements and her friends drive from the Inland Empire to spend Thanksgiving in Newport Beach. When the eating is over, the shopping begins.
"A group of us is at South Coast Plaza right now and we plan to meet later," Clements said.
Clements started the day at 7 a.m. at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. In addition to Macy's, she hit Bloomingdale's and had lunch with her girlfriends.
The uninitiated also came out.
Carol Huang said she didn't know about Black Friday until last year. She and her friend got to Fashion Island in the morning to shop at Urban Outfitters.
