BOZEMAN — One of the busiest shopping days is quickly approaching.

Black Friday kicks off in a few short days, and of course, this year has changed a lot for a lot of businesses including how they’ll do Black Friday this year.

To encourage less foot traffic in stores, many businesses have adopted other measures to get customers involved all while decreasing the contact between people in the store.

“Simply, just offer a much wider selection online and another thing we’re doing is kind of offering a free delivery system. We will deliver your order to your house, so you don’t even have to leave your house if you’re quarantining or don’t feel comfortable coming in,” said Lauren Wolf, the manager at Bozeman Running Company.

Many stores have also extended their normal store hours to spread out the number of people in the store at a time.
