Black Friday shoppers out to get the best deals in Central Illinois
PEORIA (25 NEWS) - Black Friday is in full swing in Central Illinois and shoppers are out getting the best deals.
Northwoods Mall in Peoria saw crowds arriving at its doors when it opened at 6 a.m. Friday morning. Marketing director for the mall, Bob Schertz, said all the stores had been crowded, but Bath & Body Works had seen consistently long lines all morning.
Some shoppers from Canton said they woke up at 4:30 a.m. to get to the sales and were pleasantly surprised with the lines.
“Not bad so far, I can’t complain. I mean it’s a lot more people than usual, but it hasn’t been too bad,” said Canton resident, Terri Sollo.
Sollo and Kylie Matthews said they have a tradition of Black Friday shopping for three years now and are excited to continue it.
