Deer Widows Weekend brings thousands to Birch Run Premium Outlets

BIRCH RUN, MI (WNEM) -

While men were out for the hunt this weekend, the women were too.

"To stand in lots of lines and save some cash," Catherine Simon said.

Deer Widow Weekend brought quite the crowd to the Birch Run Premium Outlets.

"We go to lunch and we spend the night. Then we come back and go to Tommy in the morning. Rock it out with Tommy! We make it an all weekend thing," Simon said.

Representatives for the shopping center say the turnout was great this year.

“We are seeing things anywhere from 40 to 60 percent off in some of the stores - Under Armor, North Face, Coach all have long lines outside their stores. There were great bargains to be had. People were happy to wait because you will see some unbelievable savings this weekend," Jason Wolverton said.

Wolverton estimates around 100,000 people showed up for the bargain hunt last weekend.

New this year was the Glampground, showcasing luxury RVs and camping gear. 

There were also plenty of men who skipped out on deer hunting for savings.

"I'm not a big hunter! I'm one of the weird men that like to shop," Jason Townsend said.

The next big day of shopping for Birch Run will be for Black Friday. Some stores will open on Thanksgiving starting at 6 p.m.
