Black Friday tradition sees slightly normal traffic, not so normal restrictions

For many in Gillette, walking through the aisles of Menards with a shopping cart at the crack of dawn the morning after Thanksgiving is a holiday tradition, and a pandemic wasn't going to stop them from finding bargains this year.

A shopper watches the sun rise over the horizon while heading to their vehicle after shopping for Black Friday at Menards Friday.

The sun was still tucked below the horizon while customers shopped, carrying  with them coffees and energy drinks. Some carts were full of toasters, air fryers and other kitchen appliances. Other customers wandered around aimlessly looking for that big deal to take home.
