Fearing supplies shortage, Black Friday receives huge turnout

Black Friday

Americans have rushed to the stores to take advantage of the Black Friday offers at the beginning of the shopping season, which precedes the end of the year.

Internet data showed that weeks ago Americans began spending and buying large sums of goods, fearing a shortage of supplies.

The shopping season offers has begun in preparation for New Year’s Day. Observers will often see, from now until the end of the year, Americans queuing in front of stores before they open their doors to seize the opportunity to purchase high-demand goods.

Signs at Macy’s remind shoppers to stay six feet (about two metres) away from each other.

However, the movement of customers inside the stores indicated that many of them adapted to the “new normal” of life with the pandemic, and there were clear gaps in some stores, and in some stores the lack of goods was clear, “which stimulates the turnout on Black Friday more.
