Louisville Shoppers Flood Malls, Despite Economy

On this Friday after Thanksgiving, known to retailers as Black Friday, shoppers packed Louisville’s store corridors.  That’s despite news of the anemic economy.  At the Mall of St. Matthews, Louisville resident Kerry McCusker took a break on a bench with her two daughters.“It doesn’t seem like anybody’s sparing their money though, it’s a whole bunch of money going on here, whole lot of people," says McCusker.McCuskey says she plans to limit her spending this holiday season to what her daughters truly need.  Other shoppers said that although they still planned to give presents to loved ones, they would be more cautious with their gift-giving dollars.  Retail results will show whether that willingness to spend, even if a bit less, can lend a boost to already flagging sales.
