Holiday Shoppers Head Out Despite the Snow



    Determined Triathlete Never Lost Hope

    The snow didn't deter some holiday shoppers on Wednesday.

    In fact, some used the day to get a head start hoping to beat crowds later this week.

    “I wanted to beat all the craziness and I just came to get a few things," said Laura Silvay, who was shopping in Manchester, "and of course I ended up with a ton more.”

    That craziness will start even earlier in Manchester this year, with the Shoppes at Buckland Hills slated to open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

    “I bought some food for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving and some extras. It’s the first time I’ve been out in the snow,” said Kevin Ritchie.

    Westfarms Mall is also opening at 6 p.m. tomorrow.
