Still Time To Prepare Stanchions For Black Friday
Black Friday is quickly approaching. Within a few weeks, millions of Americans will flock to retail stores across the country for the annual holiday sales event known as Black Friday. These sales, which are characterized by steep discounts on big ticket item, have become synonymous with dangerous, and in some cases, deadly behavior from shoppers.

When these sales first started, there wasn’t any thought given to security during these events. Since people died at Walmart a few years ago during a Black Friday sale stampede, that thinking has changed.

In recent years, retailers have taken steps to control the throngs of patrons at stores by implementing a variety of different tactics. These sales are now reaching back into Thursday, Thanksgiving day and the marketing is hyping the events to unprecedented levels, creating bigger and bigger crowds.

People begin to line up at the door hours before the doors open and then you have this mass amount of people pushing themselves into the store and people get trampled. Sales promotions are created to maximize turnout for the sale.

With these sales tactics, it's critical to use crowd control stanchions and barriers to control the pre-sale and sale crowds, before, during and after the event.
