    Shoppers Take to Iowa Store Before Dawn


    Shoppers are at a retail outlet in Iowa were parked and ready to snatch up after Thanksgiving bargains before sunrise.  When we parked our Prevost RV there, the lot was empty.  These photos illustrate the challenge my husband encountered in manuevering out of the lot.  Cars parked us in and made passage very narrow.  As we witnessed the shopping frenzy around us, folks came out of the store with carts brimming with purchases.  Only one woman seemed sensible, she was buying blankets and gloves because she said she was turing the heat down for the winter.  From all evidence of this traffic jam, parking lot and full shopping bags, Americans remain shoppers even in a down economy.
