A Siouxland Annual Black Friday, Sioux City

22 Nov

Like most cities across the United States, Sioux City, Iowa, was no different Thursday evening with some Christmas shoppers starting early shopping at a local Walmart Thanksgiving Day evening and others waiting to be the first inside of a Best Buy beginning at 12 midnight Friday morning. The shoppers leaving the Walmart store were cheering and smiling showing the shopping results they were after were successful. Most carrying an armful of “stuff” to make someone happy this Christmas season.  Likewise, the shoppers patiently waiting for the Best Buy to open were either inside of tents or buried under blankets warding off the night’s chill. Weather-wise, the shoppers were lucky as unseasonable warm temperatures have been kind. However, the low overnight into Friday was to hit the 20’s.
