ST. CROIX — Some dedicated shoppers stood in line as early as 4 a.m. on Friday to catch some of the many deals offered by stores around St. Croix on the biggest shopping day of the year — Black Friday.

While many purchased toys and electronics to place under Christmas trees, others stocked up on items ranging from televisions, appliances and living room rugs to tires and power saws — and even new furniture to replace older sets.
