Cochran Walmart attracts new shoppers amongst pre Black Friday crowd.

Many people hit the stores Thursday night in search of deals for their Christmas shopping needs.  Cochran Walmart, in its first year open, provided a place where many came to snag clothes, electronics, and other gifts on sale.

Some of the shoppers were first-timers.  That included Wendi Allen.  She said the only reason she was shopping was because there was a Walmart in Cochran.  Also making their debut were Stephen and Jeanne White.  Though they stood in line for two hours two different times to purchase TV's, Stephen said they were glad to shop locally and keep the tax dollars in Cochran.  Jeanne praised how well it was organized, having a police presence, as well as how friendly everyone had been.  She added that people would leave line to get bottled water or candy and be allowed to return.
