The doors at the mall opened at 6 a.m. but some were surprised about how few people they saw.

"It’s a little depressing for Black Friday. There’s no excitement. There’s no one waiting at the doors. No special deals going that people are going crazy over. It’s a little bit depressing," said shopper David Wilson.

Forever 21 had a sign posted that said they were offering 21 percent off purchases made before noon.

Many deals were offered Thursday or are available online. 

However, a spokesperson with the Palm Beach Outlets said a number of retailers' sales are beating last year's numbers.

Some shopping outlets are trying to get people to visit their stores during the holidays by offering games, raffles or pictures with Santa.
