Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Central New Yorkers arrived at the Destiny USA mall and stores throughout the area to take advantage of deals that have come to be associated with Black Friday.
All of the stores at Central New York’s largest shopping center opened by midnight, while some stores in the area opened as early as Thanksgiving Day in an effort to draw in shoppers.
Katie Knox said that waiting in line early at Toys R Us was worth it.
“It is, for my kids, it is. i would do anything for my kids. And the deals are amazing, so it's worth it,” she said. “My kids deserve the best Christmas ever and I refuse to pay a mint for it, so this is the perfect blending of both worlds.”
Many stores will remain open through midnight on Friday, while others will offer sales throughout the Thanksgiving weekend
