While many stores opened Thanksgiving night, Bass Pro Shop opened its doors, to a line wrapped around the building, at 5 a.m. Black Friday.
Every employee was on-hand to help customers. One employee anticipated a crowd of about 15,000 people. Workers directed the crowd into the building one person at a time, avoiding any shoving.
$10 jeans and a discounted shotgun were the most-buzzed-about items.
The woman at the front of the line told Channel 8 she arrived at 10:30 the night before.
Workers told Channel 8 the morning ran smoothly, and the discounted dog beds were the first item to sell out.
