Shoppers head out early to Roosevelt Field for Black Friday specials
Long Island shoppers headed out early to Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City for Black Friday specials and sales.
Retailers consider Black Friday the official start of the holiday shopping season. Many stores in Roosevelt Field opened at 5 a.m. to accommodate the early shoppers.
Meanwhile, special deals drew so many people to a Wal-Mart in Massapequa that five Nassau police cars were called in for crowd control. Consumers arrived before the store opened at 5 a.m. to get their hands on items including laptops, which were in short supply. Click here for more on the chaos in Massapequa.
