KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (WPVI) --Black Friday bargains had some shoppers setting their alarms.
"The early bird gets the worm, definitely," said Anthony Revell of Overbrook.
From Target on City Line, to Center City and down in Delaware, marathon shoppers packed the parking lots to get traffic-stopping steals.
"I thought maybe if I came in here early, pick up a few things, I'd get a bargain, and I did," said Brenda Parks of West Philadelphia.
"We've been having a ball. We've been up all night. Still ready to go strong," said Shirley DeCarolis of Clifton Heights. "$4.99 for stuff, that's a bargain."
And for those trying to avoid the crunch of cars waiting for a parking spot, King of Prussia Mall is now offering an alternative.
"If you valet park, you get a car wash. That's a nice perk!" said Kathy Smith, Director of Marketing and Business Development at KOP Mall.
That's good news for those planning to shop until they drop.
"We already went to the car twice. This is our third, and we're going to hang out a little bit longer," said Debbie Funk of Collegeville.
And for some the crowds, the chaos has become part of their after-Thanksgiving tradition.
"We do it every Black Friday. We start early in the morning. We've been here since 7," said Funk.
"We go every single year. You can get your favorite piece of clothing for like 50 percent off," said Annie Dao/ Chadsford
Checking off their lists. of whose been naughty or nice.
"I did not get everybody on my list, but there were some good deals, some stuff for me, some stuff family," said Jen Morlock of Glen Mills.
KOP reopens at 8 in the morning until 10 p.m.
And if the Black Friday crowds are any kind of indication, it is going to be a very Merry Christmas for many retailers and residents across our area.
