RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Parking lots were empty and long lines outside of stores were nonexistent on Thanksgiving but shoppers will be out in full force on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

The National Retail Federation predicts this weekend will break records with more than 166 million people shopping this holiday weekend.

It’s 8 million more people than last year as more people are gathering with their families around the holidays again.

NRF expects there to be more stock for some of those big items you’re searching for this holiday season.

Certainly not what we’ve seen in the last two years due to supply chain issues.

Stores like Best Buy and Kohl’s opened as early as 5 a.m., while Walmart opened at 6 a.m. followed by Target at 7 a.m.

At the malls, South Park Mall opened at 7 a.m. while Chesterfield Towne Center opened at 9 a.m. along with Short Pump Town Center and Stony Point Fashion Mall.
