Christmas shopping season got off to a fast and furious start Thursday night in Ontario. Traffic thinned-out somewhat after daybreak, but there's still plenty of hustle and bustle out there. Ontario Police were out in force watching the heavy traffic, on the streets and in the stores. Captain Dale Myers says traffic was heavy and the stores were packed, but everything went smoothly. Police report only one minor-injury car accident. The managers of Best Buy and Target say they had a wave of customers, but all went well. And, we found two shoppers who got great deals on new televisions. Hunter LaChance of Galion saved $50 on a TV at Best Buy, while Tianna Keinath of Shelby saved $150 at Target. By the way, both purchases are not gifts. The T-V's are for themselves. Shopping, and the traffic that goes with it, are expected to be steadily heavy for the next few weeks, with another frenzy starting the weekend before Christmas.
