Crossgates Mall, still a traditional hub for Black Friday shopping

An early and different start for Black Friday shopping

She says in the past she's witnessed some pretty heated exchanges between shoppers during Black Friday sales, but all around things were relatively calm this time around. "We've already had our turkey, and the Cowboys weren't even on, so here we are".

The Connecticut Post Mall is open until 10 p.m.

This is due in no small part to retailers stealing their own thunder: Many have pre-Black Friday specials, and many open on Thanksgiving Day itself.

An official from Mall of America says there were about 2,500 people in line Friday morning ahead of Black Friday.

"I don't think it's dying".

"For Gen Z, the holiday shopping weekend is a can't-miss opportunity", Goodfellow, the analyst, said.

"Yes, he's loving me today", Bridgette Hudgins said.

"Because you get to shop", said Kennedy, a teenage shopper who was up since 5 the morning, explaining why she enjoys shopping on Black Friday. The federation also has predicted a 0.4 percent increasing in spending this year. I would expect that the best is yet to come.

Demand was strong enough that Lucky Strike added a second performance by the Latham resident at 7 p.m. Sunday.

At Earthbound, a novelty shop with a nod to nature, manager Lierna Jackson said, "We're doing OK".

On the biggest shopping day of the year bargain hunters head to the area's biggest shopping mall. "The best sellers are our higher-ticketed items". Jim Sadler, general manager of Westroads Mall, said.

"Traffic has been excellent, insane in a good way, steady since 10 a.m.", Bath & Body Works supervisor Mandy Schronk said.

"I'm not a good person for the mall".

It helped that the new White Barn candle-and-scent emporium has opened next door to offer home fragrances, Schronk said. "It's the strategy, how do we get there fast enough to get the TV or the sneakers or whatever it might be". I think Cyber Monday will end up taking over some day but I don't think it's dying, I think it's fun.
