Stores Prepare for Friday Shoppers
Shelves at Target are stacked from floor to ceiling. Black Friday's morning rush for price cuts means every major consumer store must stock up for the madness of shoppers galore. And for store manager Deb Pease, it's a madness well-planned.
"We prep to make sure our end-caps are nice and full, and we have all the ad merchandise available for our guests so it's easy for them to find," said Target manager Deb Pease. "We also do lots of training with our team members and make sure we have plenty of staff in case our guests have any questions."
Pease says every year, shoppers wait outside in long lines, and when that door opens at 6 a-m, those huge stacks of toys and CD's rapidly disappear. And even though every Target employee must work that day, Pease says it really isn't all too bad.
"It's a lot of fun. I mean the guests out there, you know, it's their day, they love this day. They wait for this day of the year, so the guests are in a great mood, they're having a great time, and we're having fun, the team has fun too," said Pease.
So start a countdown, bargains and savvy shoppers await. Target says it will help customers by strategically placing shopping carts around the store.
