Black Friday is right around the corner and stores in the east are gearing up.
At the Jacksonville Mall, stores are bringing items from the back and stocking up shelves. Mall officials are preparing goodie bags they will hand out to customers detailing specials for the day.
Retailers are working hard to attract customers and they remain optimistic they will have a good turnout.
Jacksonville Mall, like many others, opens at 5:00 a.m. Friday. Other locations will open as early as midnight with selected items on sale like clothes and toys.
