Stores were not the only places packed with holiday shoppers Friday. Northern Michigan University experienced some of the fun as well.
The Wildcats got into the holiday spirit with their own Black Friday. The Athletic Department sold discounted seats to all of the upcoming home hockey games.
The $10 tickets were available for purchase online or in person at the Berry Events Center. Fans stood in line, cash in hand.
“We heard about the special, the Black Friday special and we were making plans to come to the game anyway with some friends so we thought we would come down and grab some tickets,” Marie White said. “We love hockey so we are excited to be able to come.”
“We saw the ad saying they were having a Black Friday sale for the rest of the season and we thought ‘What a great opportunity to come and support Northern Michigan University and get a good deal’,” John White said.
