D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - It's almost time for the first sign of the Christmas holiday shopping rush - Black Friday.
"I tell you, we've been preparing three months for this weekend. I feel very comfortable knowing our associates are going to be able to get everything they need when they come in on this weekend," said D'Iberville Best Buy Manager Steve Moses.
Rather than the traditional holiday shopping chaotic fiasco, Moses and the rest of the Best Buy team are trying a new approach that will hopefully help keep the peace.
"We're gonna open our doors 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day and generally about an hour before, we'll have vouchers that we hand out for the door busters items. That way we ensure people in line get the product that they want, they don't have to kinda tussle over it or anything," said Moses.
Moses says the new method should make the Black Friday shopping experience friendlier. Something that shoppers could do to avoid the holiday rush would be to do some shopping beforehand.
"We have pre-Black Friday sales going on this week, and up through til Wednesday. Things as big as up to 40 percent off major appliances, a lot of them are up to 40 percent off," added Moses.
