“I like it. I have nothing else to do, so, why not, right,” said Molly Passerini of Wakefield as she browsed outside of Tilly’s clothing store. Passerini said the atmosphere inside the mall was a lot less hectic than the line that formed outside of Sears. Passerini, who has worked in retail, said the early openings are not pleasant for workers, but it’s great for shoppers.
While he was able to get into the mall to go the Apple retail store at 12:30 a.m., George Erwin of Wakefield had a bit of a wait ahead of him as he sat on the floor about to “power nap” until 6 a.m. when the store opened.
“Deals, but I’m here for something new, a new product line they came out with,” Erwin said. “It’s well organized, as far as how they are doing it,” said Erwin, who said the crowds in the mall were well-behaved.
