USA: Shoppers trashed a Nike store in Seattle on Black Friday
This year, Black Friday turned orange for one Seattle-area Nike store.
The sportswear giant’s iconic orange shoe boxes littered the floor after shoppers tore through the Tulalip, Washington, store on the second-biggest day for retail of the year. Pictures of the store went viral Saturday.
An employee of the store said about 20,000 shoppers entered the store from 8 p.m. Thursday to 10 p.m. Friday, BuzzFeed reported, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
“People [were] not putting anything back in the right place at all the whole time we were open,” the employee said.

A video from the store shows customers stepping over strewn-about boxes and children idly kicking them away. The damage does not seem to be contained to any one area of the store.
Nike is expected to maintain its status as one of the hottest brands this holiday season, and it is still very popular among teenagers and young adults.
A spokesperson for Nike confirmed to Business Insider that the store experienced a high volume of shoppers on Black Friday, and the store was put back in order by Saturday morning.
