Wilmington shoppers line up on Thursday for Black Friday
WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY) — The day after Thanksgiving is considered to be one of the busiest shopping days of the year. A lot of bargain hunters in Wilmington lined up hours in advance in order to stand in line for stores that open once the clock strikes midnight on Thursday for Black Friday.
Americans love bargains and Wilmington residents certainly know a good deal when they see it, but sometimes that requires standing in line for hours. Tammy Mitchell got to the Wilmington Target at noon on Thursday. She was first in line by a two hour margin.
“I’ve never been first in line for anything before, Mitchell said. “I wanted to be first this year because I lost out last year.”
The line was even longer at the Wilmington Best Buy on Thanksgiving night. Tracy Johnson was first in line. She got there on Wednesday night. “I got in line around 8:30 on Wednesday night,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be worth it though because we’re going to get a 42’ television for $199.”
Customers in line at Best Buy in Wilmington were treated to a free Harry Potter movie in the parking lot on Thursday night as well.
