HAGERSTOWN -- The recession didn't stop bargain hunters from hitting retail stores before sunrise on Black Friday, but several seasoned shoppers at Valley Mall in Hagerstown said the crowd seemed thinner than in previous years. "I thought there were a lot more people last year," said Bonnie Cusic of Hagerstown. Cusic and a group of friends who began shopping at 5 a.m. at Kohl's in Crosspoint Shopping Center said they would likely continue to make the rounds at various stores all day. Cusic's friend, Misty Trite of Smithsburg, said she does the majority of her Christmas shopping in bits and pieces throughout the year, rather than wait until Black Friday.
