Hundreds of shoppers busted down the doors of Queens Center mall at midnight on Black Friday.

There’s no time to nap for Fahad Azad.

The Black Friday shopper told The Courier he had been awake since 5 a.m., but still plans on spending the entire day hunting down good deals.

“We want to buy things,” he said. “This is the only day that we can get a big sale and where people can buy a lot of stuff. The electronic sales are way too good.

“These long lines are tiring, but it’s worth it,” he said, adding that he has already saved close to $100.

Like Azad, hundreds of eager, ambitious shoppers busted down the doors of Queens Center mall on Friday, November 25 at midnight with one thing in mind — sales, sales, sales.

“If you’re doing your entire Christmas shopping, and you’re spending close to a thousand dollars for the family, it’s definitely worth it to come out,” said Steven Steinerman.

He happily waited on an entire store-length long line to purchase a basketball on sale for $10, while his wife, Esther, took advantage of the “33 percent off any team item deal” at Modell’s.

“The long lines are a little bit inconvenient, but we’ll live through it,” Esther said. “The weather is nice, and I didn’t have to wake up at 5 in the morning to get a good deal.”
