GREENVILLE, S.C. – Upstate shoppers wasted no time putting down the turkey, and picking up their wallets.
“We actually had a Thanksgiving lunch,” said Cody Steves in line at ‘Toys R Us.’ “It’s actually two hundred bucks off the stroller that we’re wanting.”
He wasn’t the only one who decided to get there early. Well before the doors opened, people were sitting or standing in line.
“The play set deal was too good to pass up,” said Jake Edison, who was first in line at the ‘Toys R Us’ on Woodruff Road. He arrived around 3:00 p.m. for the store’s 5:00 p.m. opening. At 7:00 p.m., hundreds had already been inside the store, and customers were still arriving well into the evening.
For some, Black Friday has become a tradition that gets them the best deals for their hard earned money.
“Every year we come out and get some cheap stuff,” said shopper Gloria Taylor.
“We just came to get some good deals today. We’ve been shopping since about 3 o’clock,” said Betty Quarshie who we caught up with at the Walmart on Woodruff Road. “The crowds weren’t too bad, they were better than we expected.”
She said the day was a success, as her savings will help someone outside her family, too.
“We picked a kid off the Angel tree,” she said. “We look forward to giving back each year. That’s something I make sure to teach my daughter: that it’s better to give than receive.”
