Black Friday Safety Tips

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, and with that comes a possibility of danger.

“Its crazy out here,” says Black Friday shopper, Enrique Ortega.

In the years past some shoppers have gotten into fights–been trampled over or even mugged..

“You just never know. Some people break into the stuff you work hard for, you know,” Ortega says.

But shoppers at Best Buy have taken the extra measures to make sure they stay out of harms way.

“Time management is probably one of the biggest things,” says Shopper Thomas Rubio. “If you’re out at places a long time with a lot of bags, and you set one down, you can turn around and all of a sudden it’s gone.”

Xiomara Foote has shopped many Black Fridays. She says she is taking extra precautions to make sure she stays safe.
“I make sure I lock the doors and cover up my stuff,” says Foote.

Police say plan out your trip before hitting the stores, and only take one credit card with you. Another tip is to avoid leaving your purchases in plain sight in your car.

But as for Thomas Rubio, he leaves the community with this advice.

“Don’t blow all your money at once,” he says.
