Northern Nevadans Begin Black Friday Shopping

Posted: Updated:


Northern Nevadans are packing parking lots to try and get the best bargains on hot ticket items for Black Friday.

"Black Friday, Thanksgiving night are the biggest days of the year," said Catherine Oaks, Marketing Director for the Outlets at Sparks. "There's so many amazing deals here that people won't find any other time of year."

Santa Claus was in town welcoming in the holidays as well. He said hello to the shoppers at the Outlets at Sparks, which is one of the many places people are finding deals on toys, clothing and electronics.

"We got shoes," said Megan Humphrey of Cold Springs. "Incredible deals at Converse for shoes for my husband and my son, and yeah, it's going great."

Some locals even showed up early to wait in line to be one of the first to get those sales. They say it's worth it because they get to save money this holiday season.

"I'm a teacher, and they don't pay teachers enough," said Marell Kemp of Stead. "So, therefore, I have to come out here and do all the cheap items."

"Normally, families that maybe can't get their kids presents because they're on a certain budget, and everything's so expensive nowadays," Humphrey said. "We can do incredible amounts with so little on this day."

Some are taking part in Black Friday shopping just for the experience.

"We've never gone here early and just took advantage of the sales that they're having," said Rich Aguilar of Sparks. "So, it's not so much the money as it is wanting to kind of experience everything."

And, some are even shopping with new friends. All who are waiting in line for the deals means meeting some new people.

"I made new friends, and I'm enjoying myself," Kemp said.
