Black Friday shoppers lined up outside some GTA stores in the hopes of scoring some deals, on what has become one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Many Canadian malls and stores opened earlier than usual, hoping to cash in on the Black Friday mania that normally sweeps through the U.S.

The day after American Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year – on both sides of the border.

But it’s also morphed from a single day, when people get up early to score so-called door-buster deals, into a whole season of discounts.

So some shoppers may simply check their phones and go back to sleep.
