Many office workers spent their lunch breaks joining the shopping frenzy.

A crowd of shoppers wait outside a fashion store for Black Friday sales. The largest shopping day in the U.S. has also become a big day for promotions in Vietnam in recent years. 


The shop only allowed a small number of customers in at a time while the rest had to wait in turn.


Long lines of people wait to buy discounted bags and shoes.


Many shops offered big price cuts of up to 50 percent.


Clothes, glasses and jewelry were among the most sought after items.


This shop is offering promotions through the weekend.
