Black Friday is only a few days away, meaning it's time for shoppers to get a game plan.
Colony Square Mall is Zanesville officially open at 6AM but more than a dozen retailers within the mall open as early as midnight.
"In addition to great sales, we're also giving away a $10 dollar gift card if you spend $100 or more on Black Friday," said Business and Marketing Director Kevin Pinson. "We'll start giving those out at 7AM and we've got 200 to give away, so you'll want to get your shopping done before 7:00 and get in line."
Pinson said the mall has been preparing all week, stocking stores and setting up kiosks. He said to optimize on deals, a successful shopper is a prepared shopper
"You need a game plan when you come in, you need to get those sale flyers out of the paper, research the internet and plan where you're going to hit and when," said Pinson. "Get those door busters out of the way first because they tend to go fast."
WHIZ's radio station Z-92 will be broadcasting live from 600 to 8:00 a.m.at the mall on Black Friday.
