PARK CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) It is the mad dash that kicks off the holiday shopping season: Black Friday, which now blends into Thanksgiving.
“It's so exciting to see everyone come out after they've eaten turkey, taken a nap, they come out and shop all night,” said Candice Wilson, General Manager of Tanger Outlets in Park City. “It's kind of becoming one of those things people are expecting. They want to get out there and get the best deals they can, get started on the holiday season.”
The Tanger Outlets are opening Thanksgiving day at 10pm, with a new set of discounts starting at 3a.m.
