TORONTO, Ont. – It may have been the busiest shopping day in the United States, but retailers north of the border were not about to let all Canadians go south of the border to get deals.

Several stores in the GTA opened their doors early Friday morning, offering Boxing-Day style deals.

“So far, we’ve seen it actually exceed our expectations,” said Best Buy’s communication manager Danielle Jang. “We know that our customers love a great deal and this is the first year we’ve decided to participate in the Black Friday event, and the awareness has grown so much among Canadian customers.”

“We’ve seen so far a great turnout to our stores, lots of great lineups.”

And that madness isn’t over just yet. Next up for bargain hunters is Cyber Monday, considered to be one of the biggest online shopping days of the year.

“I think they’re closer to Boxing Day type prices, what customers come to expect around Boxing Day, and the Cyber Monday shopper is looking for deals. The Boxing Day shopper is looking often for deals for themselves,” Jang told 680News.

“We see those two customer groups as being a little bit different, but the pricing is similar between the two.”

Cyber Monday sales will begin late Sunday evening.
