MILFORD - Shoppers taking advantage of the Black Friday deals at Westfield Connecticut Post Mall in Milford today said having the mall open Thanksgiving night made for a more pleasant shopping experience on Black Friday.

Mall management said they opened at 8 p.m. last night, four hours earlier than last Thanksgiving. Shoppers said they believe that made for smaller crowds today.

"I didn't really have to wait on many lines like I expected,” shopper Stephanie Gavilanez, of Derby, said. “Yesterday, it was actually busier. I came at 10 and I had to wait on half-hour lines, and today, I didn't really have to. I went right through."
