Cuyahoga Falls — Howe Avenue was the place to be for great deals on Black Friday.
The aisles were full with customers looking for perfect holiday presents at Target Nov. 23. The toy section was especially crowded.
One customer claimed she came in looking for a microwave but ended up with a TV. “I thought the TVs might be gone if I didn’t grab one now,” claimed the customer.
According to one of the managers, there was a decently long line as the store opened its doors at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving night. “TVs were our biggest doorbusters,” said the manager. “We were just as busy as past years. We had a good amount of employees and were able to get customers in the doors faster than usual.” There were many people gathered around the Samsung LED TV in particular.
Best Buy was definitely a crowd favorite. The computer section was especially crowded with customers looking for hot deals.
Customer Shannon Sales came in for two ASUS Intel Pentium laptops for her daughters. “They have a pink one and a green one, exactly what I wanted. This is awesome,” said Sales.
According to Best Buy connectivity sales manager Nick Dolansky, the traffic and sales were much better compared to past years. “There were over 2,000 people waiting in line at midnight,” said Dolansky. “All the items we handed out tickets for are pretty much gone. We put out a new shipment of laptops and have great deals on them right now,” said Dolansky.
All the parking lots at Chapel Hill mall and surrounding stores were packed.
