Turnout has been strong Friday at Opry Mills, which is experiencing its first Black Friday sales since being closed after the May 2010 flood of the building.
Mall officials said there had been a steady flow of traffic at the mall since it opened at midnight.
People started lining up at the mall around 10 p.m. Thursday night. Some of the anchor stores, like Bass Pro Shops, didn't open until 5 a.m.
The big draw at Opry Mills, like many other retailers, has been those doorbuster deals.
Places like Ann Taylor and J. Crew rolled out discounts between 30 percent and 50 percent.
"It's really about finding the right gifts," said Traci Akins, one of the many shoppers to take advantage of the Black Friday deals. "I was looking for something that each person would want and hoping we can find something special."
If you were tired or couldn't make it out to the stores Thursday night or early Friday morning, there are still plenty of deals.
A lot of retailers are having what they call "super" sales throughout the weekend.
On top of that, most places have extended their hours through Christmas.
