turned orange for a Seattle-area Nike store.

A store worker said about 20,000 shoppers entered the store from 8 p.m. Thursday to 10 p.m. Friday, BuzzFeed reported, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.

Video from the store shows customers stepping over scattered boxes and children lazily pushing them away. The damage does not appear to be limited to a single area of ​​the store.

Nike is expected to maintain its status as one of the hottest brands this holiday season, and it’s still hugely popular with teens and young adults.

A Nike spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that the store experienced a large number of shoppers on Black Friday and that the store was restored to order Saturday morning.
