It's not Friday the 13th but it is Black Friday in New Zealand and alongside Boxing Day, today marks one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Black Friday is originally an American tradition where the day after Thanksgiving, retailers throw open their doors to bargain hunters wanting to take advantage of big discounts.

Reporter Ella Stewart and Cameraman Simon Rogers went to New Zealand's biggest mall Sylvia Park this morning to get amongst it.
