Local store spends hours preparing for Black Friday


Thousands across the Charlotte region are expected to wait in line for hours early Friday morning, waiting for the midnight opening of Black Friday.

WBTV caught up with the general manager at a local Best Buy Wednesday night, to hear more about the preparations.

"The main thing is to get the store ready," said store manager Steve Callaway.

Callaway says Black Friday is one of his favorite days of the year, because it brings in the most money, and he meets many different customers.

"It's just a lot of fun. You come into contact with a lot of great people," he says.

While several local stores will begin Black Friday before midnight, Callaway says his store will not be open, and his employees will have Thanksgiving off.

"I think Black Friday is a good thing. It's good for people to come out and support the economy," said shopper Keesha Ramsue.

Other shoppers disagree, and would prefer to shop online.

"A lot happens on Black Friday. I've heard of a lot of fights," said Harrison Sipe.
