Black Friday brought strong crowds to Westfield Galleria in Roseville, with many shoppers pulling all-night sprees to get the best deals.
For Yolanda Herring of Antelope, her excursion started at 7 p.m. Thanksgiving night at a Toys 'R Us in Citrus Heights, an hour before the store opened.
"They had the best prices on everything," she said.
By 8 a.m. Friday, she was at the Galleria, carrying bags from Bath and Body Works, Express, JC Penney and Disney Store.
"Toys and clothes - those were the two things" on her Black Friday shopping lists, she said. "It was a little busy with crowds, but the discounts were good."
Police said Black Friday shopping was going smoothly at some of the areas biggest retail spots in Roseville.
Police received two calls for disturbances early this morning, including one report of a trash can lid being used in a fight in the parking lot of the Galleria, however, no one was there when officers arrived, said Roseville Police Sgt. Karl Dyer.
"So far so good," Dyer said. "Everything seems to be going well over here."
Savanah Sanchez of Davis took advantage of a lull in line at a GameStop in the Galleria to catch a nap on friend Pablo Orozco's shoulder. Their Black Friday began 9 p.m. Thursday at the Vacaville outlet stores.
Orozco was looking for a XBox, Sanchez wanted sales on clothes and sneakers, but was a little disappointed.
"It felt like a regular shopping day," Sanchez said. "A lot of stores didn't have specials - there weren't too many of them this year. It was kind of a let down."
For Orozco of Davis, GameStop looked to be his last stop after a long night, with a long day ahead.
"I have to go to work in a little bit, so I'm going after this."
