Local retailers anticipate large crowds ahead of Black Friday shopping

"I think it's going to be stronger than it has been in the past," said Spinout owner Diane Bunker.

TYLER, Texas — As she and her staff took inventory and restocked merchandise Monday, Diane Bunker, owner of the Tyler women's and children's store Spinout, said she's expecting this year's Black Friday shopping to be much bigger than previous years.

Last year's Black Friday was OK, but she thinks this year's going to top 2020 by leaps and bounds.

"I think it's going to be stronger than it has been in the past (and it) seems like people are trying to buy local and stay local in their buying habits," Bunker said. "I've seen just a huge resurgence and they like to feel (the clothes) and touch it, and of course, the clothing, they like to be able to try it on and that way they're not sending things back."

She's owned the store for 35 years, and in preparation for Friday, she and the employees are restocking to prepare for the incoming holiday demand.
