'We've never done anything like this' | The Band Perry hosts Black Friday yard sale in hometown of Greeneville all weekend

The East Tennessee band members are clearing out their closets.

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. — If you're looking for a unique Black Friday shopping experience, look no further. 

The Band Perry is taking over an empty shop in their hometown of downtown Greeneville for a yard sale.

In a Facebook post on the band page, lead singer Kimberly Perry said, "I'm getting ready for 2020 and needed some space."

She goes on to say she convinced her brothers and band members Reid and Neil to let her clean out their closets and the Band Perry storage closet. 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Ok so I'm getting ready for 2020 and needed som... e space - y'all I cleared OUT my closet at home. Then I convinced Reid and Neil to let me raid their closets, and THEN I went thru the TBP storage closet...and now I'm throwing a Black Friday weekend "Yard" Sale!!

From shoes, merch, clothes, memorabilia and everything in between the Perry siblings have thousands of items up for sale. 

"We've never done anything like this," said Neil Perry. "We originally thought about putting it up online doing a free for all for all the fans, but we came back here and started recording our next batch of music. Got back into the community."

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Niswonger Foundation, a Greeneville-based group that provides education and scholarship support for kids in rural Northeast Tennessee.

"Just to have people that have been so successful and give back to the community, smile, show their face. That does a lot for the community it really bolsters just the atmosphere around here," said Raymond Knuckles, a senior at Greeneville High School helping the band with the sale. 

The next chapter in The Band Perry's music career will come with a lot of East Tennessee influence as they're back enjoying time with family and friends. 

"We're definitely influenced by where we are and right now it's knee deep in Tennessee," said Neil. "It was a fun thing to do this, a fun thing for the town just to give back a little bit."

So if your shopping bug is still itching for more shopping, The Band Perry has got you covered and they're there running the shop.

The sale will be open Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to  9 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. It will be located at 130 Depot Street in Greeneville.
