MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The rush was on Thanksgiving night as many stores opened this evening ahead of the traditional Black Friday shopping day.
At the Meridian Crossroads Shopping Center, the parking lot was packed as shoppers looking to get a great deal made their way to best buy.
The store opened at 5:00 p.m. and welcomed customers who wanted those big items with even bigger discounts.
Store manager Ray Oyler says everyone is buying a little of everything.
“We had the barricades setup. What we did was go out a couple of hours before we opened and started handing out tickets for some fabulous deals that we have on televisions, laptops, Chromebooks etc..” Oyler says.
Best Buy will be open until 1:00 a.m. Friday, then they will reset to open again at 8:00 a.m. Friday with more door-buster items for sale.
