Thousands of shoppers visit local stores for Black Friday

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of local shoppers took advantage of Black Friday deals at stores across the Tennessee Valley.

Stores like Belk and J.C. Penney's opened early Thanksgiving afternoon and stayed open overnight. Other stores like Academy Sports opened on the traditional Black Friday morning.

"Things settled down a bit overnight which was great, allowed to us replenish, restock and recover a little bit," said J.C. Penney's Manager Nathan Harrold.

Many shoppers say they began going to the stores after their turkey dinner Thanksgiving night and stayed up overnight shopping. Others say they started as the stores began opening Friday.

Retailers get a bit of rest before returning to work for Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.
