Target Will Be Watching Shoppers Closer On Black Friday

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — So it’s almost here, Black Friday, the day some crazy shoppers will be doing some serious bargain hunting. But Target warns it will be watching shoppers closer this year for unruly behavior.

“It’s really opposite of what the holidays should be about, which is loving one another and being respectful, just enjoying their time,” one woman told CBS13 in Natomas.

To cut down on the danger, Target says it has re-emphasized crowd safety training this year, urging crews to make eye contact with every shopper as they walk in come Black Friday to set the tone for a more relaxed experience. If they don’t behave, shoppers will be shown the door.

The shoppers CBS13 talked to on Monday all supported the policy.

“Well I think it’s a good thing. They shouldn’t be running and trampling,” one said.

“I think it’s great because people get hurt,” another said.

Target says safety is the prime concern.

    darn it you beat me to the punch! how is it that EBT cards can buy a $35 rack of ribs, but not a $10 turkey?

    • Ola

      You’re a looney. EBT cards are not alive. They do not have hands nor feet. Not even a face, dude.

    IMO, anybody who shows up at the stores at opening, which is what, 4AM or earlier, on the day after Thanksgiving, well, they are BatS–t crazy. Retailers have you all fooled into thinking the only good bargains are on that day and that they will run out of the items. Get a clue people. The retailers are playing you for suckers ! Have a nice time freezing your tush off, just to get something that probably will be cheaper in a few days !!

    If safety were their prime concern they wouldn’t have these absurd “price busting” sales that are so dangerous. No class.

    Ola, you are an idiot. The lazy crackheads holding the EBT cards. Duh!

    • Ola

      If their heads are cracked, why aren’t they at the hospital getting stitched up instead? A person can’t be lazy just because their heads are cracked. I’m guessing that they may be a bit dazed.

    I saw the video from last year, people rushing thru the doors trying to get their hooks on something,,,people fell at the door, others looked back in an uncaring rush to get there first. They were trampled and greedy shoppers could have cared less……………………………animals
