There’s no time to nap for Fahad Azad.
The Black Friday shopper told The Courier he had been awake since 5 a.m., but still plans on spending the entire day hunting down good deals.
“We want to buy things,” he said. “This is the only day that we can get a big sale and where people can buy a lot of stuff. The electronic sales are way too good.
“These long lines are tiring, but it’s worth it,” he said, adding that he has already saved close to $100.
Like Azad, hundreds of eager, ambitious shoppers busted down the doors of Queens Center mall on Friday, November 25 at midnight with one thing in mind — sales, sales, sales.
“If you’re doing your entire Christmas shopping, and you’re spending close to a thousand dollars for the family, it’s definitely worth it to come out,” said Steven Steinerman.
He happily waited on an entire store-length long line to purchase a basketball on sale for $10, while his wife, Esther, took advantage of the “33 percent off any team item deal” at Modell’s.
“The long lines are a little bit inconvenient, but we’ll live through it,” Esther said. “The weather is nice, and I didn’t have to wake up at 5 in the morning to get a good deal.”
