Thousands in New Hampshire hit stores to get the best deals for Black Friday.

"I'd like to get it all done with one fell-swoop," said Cindy Taylor who is shopping Black Friday for the second time.

"It helps you on your list, at least you start thinking about who you gotta get for" says Becky Vinson of Manchester.

The Malls opened yesterday at 6 p.m., with some stores staying open all night and some shoppers are dedicated to a Black Friday traditions.

LeeAnne Johnson of Brookline says she began her tradition about 20 years ago with her mom.

"We wanted something to do, we didn't do anything else on the day after (Thanksgiving)" she continues to say that a few years ago her entire family became involved "now it's just a a tradition and we all go out to breakfast after."

Other people have never experienced Black Friday and were anticipating chaos.

"I was actually kinda worried I'd be trampled or something" says Audrey Wood of Freemont, "It's still kinda busy, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be".
