ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The day after Thanksgiving can mean just one thing for millions of Americans--shopping.

Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year, and it was a populator destination for bargain hunters who showed up at Crossroads Shopping Center in St. Cloud.

Mall manager Darcy Eigen says shoppers were lined up outside when the doors swung open last night.  She says it was, "fun, festive and people were in a good mood."

Eigen says Santa will be at the mall everyday through Christmas Eve.

Crossroads draws about 14 million visitors a year, and Eigen says about 40-percent of their traffic comes through the doors during the months of November and December.
