Salina Shoppers Out In Force

KSAL Staff - November 28, 2013 9:44 pm

Shoppers in Salina were out in force Thanksgiving night.

The doors to several large retailers were open throughout the day. Walmart was overflowing when “Black Friday” specials began at 6:00 Thursday evening.

Other stores including Target and Kohl’s had long lines waiting for doors to open at 8:00 with “door buster” specials.

Around the country the doors of more than a dozen major retailers were open on Thanksgiving, giving customers a jump start on holiday shopping. It’s a break with tradition.

The day after Thanksgiving, called Black Friday, had for a long time been considered the official start to the holiday buying season. But in the past few years, retailers have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night

According to consumer reports people say that this tradition is getting old. 55% say they are not shopping this weekend. They say a large portion is due to the econmony, cut in food stamps and the insurance baloney going on.

Hey Fred, do you have anything else to do with your life. Everytime I get on here to check news from back home I see your comments on every article.

I tell you what, Fred, I was at Walmart last night between 6:00pm and 8:00pm and it was wall-to-wall people. I guarantee that those 55% were NOT in Salina last night!!!

Walmart is estimating that 22,000,000 people came to their stores nationwide last night and that was just Walmart. So, tell me Fred, where were these 55% that Consumer Reports talked to??
