TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Shoppers were out in full force today to take advantage of Black Friday deals. 

Many shoppers were at local retailers.

However, some shoppers preferred to stay away from the hustle and bustle and  shop with local shops. 

Eva Berrios was visiting family from Arizona for the holiday. 

Like many shoppers she and her sister came out to shop for Black Friday. 

The only difference was she planned to only shop local. 

Owner of the Darten District Boutique said although large retailers may offer better deals and a larger inventory, locally owned shops offer unique items.
