Black Friday shopping moves forward despite COVID-19

Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — With Black Friday being the biggest shopping day of the year, stores in the area have had to figure out how to provide shoppers with deals and distance.

“Allowing our guests to save over a 10-day period of time really allows our guests to spread out there shopping, that way they don’t have to rush in all at once,” said Menards general manager Ralf Hamerski.

Burlap Penguin had to limit the number of people in their store for the start of Black Friday.

Burlap Penguin owner, Angela Garzolini, says she knows that some shoppers may still be a little nervous about continuing their traditional holiday shopping.

“We know that people are probably kind of scared this year so we’ve kind of limited our hours of what we would normally do,” said Garzolini. “We were trying to offer some great specials for people just to bring them in and to hopefully get them out.”

Both stores say they are taking all the necessary precautions including masks and sanitizing to keep customers and staff safe.
