Nashville, Tennessee (WSMV)-The closing of Thanksgiving means that Black Friday is just beginning. Some people left their Thanksgiving dinner at home on Thursday and headed straight to the mall. At Thanksgiving other than Bass Pro Shops, most, if not all, of Opley Mills were closed. Bass Pro opened at 9am Thanksgiving and was busy all day long.
Devi Williams was one of the people who shopped with his family on Thursday. “I’m checking the only store open in Nashville,” Williams said.
Williams said she and her family would actually celebrate Friday’s holiday, so they would come to Bass Pro every Thanksgiving. “We have a family and a child-in-law, so they spend the day, and then we spend the day,” Williams said.
Williams said they missed only last year. “Last year, I lost my mother, father, sister, and Bum Bum Bam because of COVID,” Williams said.
The store said that overall few people appeared on Black Friday last year. This year, their Black Friday sales began on Monday. The store is visited by far more people than usual, with about 3,000 to 4,000 people visiting each day. “Most of the ads broke on Monday,” said Assistant General Manager Yvonne Thomas. “There’s an important item that breaks at 5am tomorrow morning. This week is like Black Friday almost every day. It’s two to three times as busy as a normal Saturday every day.”
Bass Pro said that more and more people are going out early to shop directly on the supply chain issues we see nationwide. “It was said that orders placed after the pandemic began would take longer than usual,” said shopper Danny Estep. “I’m still stuck at the last minute and trying not to find something for certain people,” added shopper April Blackburn.
The Bass Fisherman door opens at 5am on Friday. The manager said he expected hundreds of people to line up outside and encouraged people to get there early.
