Shop til' you drop. That was the motto for many shoppers who headed out late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

The Lehigh Valley Mall in Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co., opened the earliest it has ever opened, at 8 p.m. Thursday night.

Hundreds of shoppers flocked there when the doors opened for sales, savings, and doorbusters.

Many shoppers shopped throughout Thanksgiving night, and another crowd of shoppers got out there early Black Friday morning.

The mall will stay open for 25 straight hours and close at 9 Friday night.
