There was once a period before the pandemic when Crossgates Mall opened on Thanksgiving evening, and stayed open all night, straight through Black Friday.

Inside the mall, people told NewsChannel 13 they were looking at getting the best deals possible.

People were shopping for everything from clothes to Xboxes.

It’s no secret that inflation has affected the price of everything.

However, people had mixed reactions when asked if that affected their shopping habits.

Hear from some of those shoppers by watching the video of Jonathan Hunter’s story.
