Financial experts are predicting the average shopper will be spending more money this holiday season.

And while that's good news for the economy, some retailers were feeling a little bruised on Black Friday after suffering a few glitches.

The holiday shopping season has officially started and while the National Retail Federation says the average person will spend more than $900 each this holiday season.

Black Friday got off to a rough start for a few retailers.

In Seattle, hundreds of black lives matter protesters gathered at a shopping center, blocking the entrance to Nordstrom’s downtown in what has now become an annual event.

Macy's had issues with processing credit card transactions nationwide, causing longer than expected lines in stores and causing frustration for online buyers.

Some JCPenney customers were not happy to find out coupons that range between $100 and 500 were not being handed out at its doors on Friday.

The change in their coupon policy didn't sit well with some customers.

This year, coupons were handed out on Thanksgiving Day and will be handed out again on Saturday.

The Lowe’s website temporarily went down on Friday while some of those irritated customers expressed their frustration on social media.

And a mall in Miami-Dade County was temporarily evacuated Friday afternoon while police investigated a possible shooting which turned out to be a false alarm.

Security says that someone pulled the fire alarm after something fell, causing a loud noise.

Police cleared the mall shortly after arriving on the scene.
