PHOTOS: Black Friday at Brookfield Square
Many stores at Brookfield Square opened their doors at midnight on Black Friday and customers flocked to the mall to take advantage of the early-morning deals.
Toys R Us and Sears beat the rest of Brookfield Square merchants to the punch by opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, but many other stores were right behind with an opening time of midnight.
While there were long lines and big crowds waiting for the stores to open, once the gates went up foot traffic was managed quite well and everyone appeared to be in a festive spirit.
The parking lots saw a lot of traffic, but did not appear overcrowded on Thursday night or Friday.
