As Black Friday approaches, local stores are preparing for shoppers.
The day after Thanksgiving is known for large crowds flocking to stores at early hours searching for good sales.
Radio Shack will open at 5:30 a.m., four hours early, and will be open until 8 p.m., an hour and a half later than usual.
“We expect a big turnout,” part-owner Eddie Wiggins said. “Every year, no matter how bad the economy is, every year that Friday after Thanksgiving is always busy.”
