Retailers and customers prepare for Black Friday sales

November 25, 2016

 

Thanksgiving dinner is over and Meridian residents are ready to grab Black Friday sales.

 

“I’m just here with my girlfriend.  I just back got home from Camp Geiger; I’m currently in the Marine Corps.  We’re just kind of looking around and enjoying our time,” said John Cicala. 

 

They’re hoping to save some money…

 

“Trying to.  I don’t believe that’s going to happen though,” said Maurice Cole. 

 

…and cross things off the Christmas wish list.

 

“X-box, iPad mini, and games,” said Alayla Coleman. 

 

“Really, just do a lot of boutique shopping like macys.com and stuff like that,” said India Glass.   

 

But customers aren’t the only ones excited.  It’s also the retailers who are expecting a big turnout. 

 

“I expect a big turnout on Black Friday.  We do have Retro 3’s releasing.  Jordan Retro 3’s,” said

Xavier Rickette, the manager at Finish Line.   

 

“We make handmade crosses to help rescue men from drug addiction and homelessness…we’re hoping everybody comes out Black Friday to check us out,” said Paul Stewart, who runs the Souls Harbor Ministry Kiosk.   

 

They hope to cash in big bucks by offering great discounts.

 

“We have scarves for customers and ornaments too.  We have a special deal for customers, $5.99 each and two for $10,” said Sam Zitouni, who runs a kiosk.   

 

“We’re going to be selling lots of different designer sunglasses.  We’ll have sunglasses starting at $79.99. The brands range from Versace and there are a few ray bans in there,” said Levi Brown, who runs the Sunglass Hut kiosk. 

 

Many stores in Meridian plan to open in just a few more hours.  Bonita lakes mall opens at 6 a.m.
