(Neb)-Strong Black Friday (Thursday) Numbers At Chadron Wal-Mart Listen
CHADRON - This is Black Friday, for many years the nation's biggest retail sales day, but some retailers around the country started them yesterday, including Walmart.
Adam Gardner, manager of the Chadron Walmart, said his store once again experienced a flood of shoppers as soon as the sales started with the sheer number of shoppers temporarily overwhelmed the checkout area with lines well into the center of the store.
Gardner was pleased with both last night's turnout and the sales results, which he says were similar to last year even though he overheard a number of customers talking about having already made purchases on line..
The Chadron Walmart underwent a recent remodeling that replaced several checker stations with self-service and added a "tower" area to pick-up items purchased on the floor with the use of Walmart associates with hand-held scanners.
The hope was that the changes would speed up the checkout process for many customers, and Gardner said it worked pretty well during the Black Friday-eve rush.
