Shoppers were out in force on Black Friday in the Bay Area, which includes ladies hunting for shoes at the Livermore Premium Outlets.
The UGG store was especially busting. Before the sun came up, the predominantly female crowd were opening boxes – and leaving them askew – in the well-lit shop. While it looked like mayhem, there were no reports of injuries.
But there were some parking snafus. Livermore police said on Thanksgiving eve, about 10,000 cars were trying to get into about 3,500 parking spots. Many seemed to park along the frontage roads, the California Highway Patrol said, to make their ways into the stores.
