A Nike store in the United States was destroyed after approximately 20,000 shoppers walked through the store looking for Black friday good deals.

The store, located in the town of Tulalip, Wash., Was pictured with shoes, boxes and packaging strewn on the workshop floor as customers walked around the carnage.

Store workers previously posted a photo on Instagram of items neatly tucked away for the Black Friday rush.

But customers then posted their own images showing the aftermath of the discount fight.

A buyer, Larry Downer, said he went to the store to buy a pair of sneakers for his young son, but was greeted with a scene of utter chaos.

He told Buzzfeed News: “I thought there had been an earthquake. It was unreal.

“We start walking from aisle to aisle, and you walk all over orange boxes.

“People were just throwing stuff out of the way. Seeing little children tossing things aside contemptuously – that bothered me a bit. As the parents swam through it, the children had the same reaction. “

A store employee estimated that 20,000 people visited the store between 8 p.m. last Thursday and 10 p.m. Friday.

The employee, who declined to be named, said: “People [were] not putting anything back in the right place the whole time we were open. “

The scene was “crazy about Jurassic Park,” he added.

Black Friday is traditionally held the day after the American Thanksgiving Festival and sees many stores open early and have promotional sales to mark the start of the Christmas shopping season.

The day was often marred by violence between shoppers competing for bargains and injuries from jostling when stores open.

There have been reports of several shootings in front of US stores on Black Friday this year. In New Jersey, a 21-year-old man was shot dead outside a Macy’s store, while another man was shot and injured in a Memphis shopping center.

In the UK, an off-duty policeman was stabbed by a Black Friday customer in Leeds, and in South Africa, a riot broke out over cheap rolls of toilet paper.
