Tallahassee, FL-November 23, 2012

Millions of shoppers are expected to flood malls all over the country this weekend in the hope of cashing in on some Black Friday deals.

The rush of Black Friday Shoppers across Tallahassee means packed parking lots, mobbed mall and shoppers feeling...

"I'm tired. I'm real tired," says shopper Ayane Richardson.

"I'm pretty tired, but I've had some caffeine so it's all fine," says shopper Devon Lynn.

Black Friday is here. And with it comes the promise of big deals and big savings that are expected to bring out millions of shoppers across the country this weekend.

The National Retail Federation is expecting about 150 million people to shop this Black Friday weekend.

While those numbers are slightly down from a year ago, at Governor's Square Mall, retailers are expecting to buck that trend.

"Our retailers are stocked, they're staffed and they're ready to excel and meet that number," says Eric Litz, General Manager of Governor's Square Mall.

Despite the struggling economy, the stores at the mall are expected to see more than 30,000 shoppers on Black Friday. That's more than double what the mall sees over a typical weekend.

So, was it worth it worth it for those Black Friday Shoppers?

"Yeah, I got everything I wanted," says shopper Ceirra Lovett.
