WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now all eyes are set on Christmas.

Shoppers were seen leaving their favorite stores with their hands and carts full as they took advantage of Black Friday deals and a reason to leave the house.

“I haven’t done it in years. It’s been a long time and it’s good to get out, believe me,” Jaime Santanello of West Springfield told 22News. “I foster kids and I have a baby so I’ve been in the house since March.”

Kohl’s in West Springfield was very busy Friday, which was surprising. It was anticipated many people would be doing their shopping online this year, but this Black Friday just shows that some shoppers still prefer to shop in person.

“I just prefer to be hands on. To handle what I’m buying,” said Thomas Russell of Huntington.

Major malls and retailers will be open until 10 p.m., Friday so you still have some time to take advantage of the sales.
