Occupy Wall Street
Midnight Massacree as Black Friday Fever Hits Johnson City, TN
5 stores and The Mall in 3 hours. Best Buy, HH Gregg, Old Navy, Target, Toys R Us, Belk's, JC Penney and The Mall. There was even a hold-up and robbery of $1,500 worth of stuff at the Jonesboro Walmart.
"I'm just here... I want to be an event that matters!" stated one gentleman waiting in line. Some shoppers camped for two nights, weathering rain and ice for the top spots at Best Buy. People saved between $200 and $800 dollars on televisions and appliances.
There was even some indication of a rivalry between the Best Buy and HH Gregg lines. It was dramatic. It was exciting. It was cold and disappointing. It was fun.
