Many retailers in the City of Clovis plan to open their doors to shoppers even earlier this year on Thanksgiving evening. Anxious Christmas shoppers will likely be lining up for evening and early morning promotional sales/discounts that many retailers are advertising. That means Clovis Police will offer extra patrols beginning at 7 p.m. on Thanksgiving night into Black Friday morning. Those will be followed by our regularly scheduled holiday patrols, which include officers (in patrol cars, on bikes and on foot), reserves and volunteers.
Several stores along the Shaw Avenue and Herndon Avenue corridors plan to open between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Officers will be looking to keep the peace in store lines in and to suppress criminal activity.
