Morgantown calm on Black Friday


Besides the thumping hip hop music in the background, the Morgantown Mall was pretty quiet about 6 a.m. The restaurants in the food court were open, though the lines were short at Wong's Wok and Sbarro. 

The mall opened at midnight, and "all the crazies came out then," said Bo Saxon, who was shopping at Four Horsemen Comics and Gaming, a specialty hobby store.
He bought a card game called "Munchkin Apocalypse" and hobby paint for 15 percent off.

Hit music station WVAQ morning show hosts Kevin Connoley and Sarah McGuire were stationed in the food court for their first time broadcasting from the mall on Black Friday. 

Sarah is the daughter of longtime morning show host Eric McGuire, a lovably cantankerous West Virginia radio veteran who is now retired in Barbour County.
