Hundreds line up for eclipse glasses at Evansville store

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The race is on to find those final few industry recommended eclipse glasses.

Hundreds of people waited in long lines through the day just a pair of the solar shades.

Evansville's Nick Nackery got another shipment in on Friday.

The store opened at 9:30 Friday morning, but the line started taking shape well before then. One woman told 14 News she got here around 7:30. She and so many others waiting for hours!

The Nick Nackery had about 3,000 glasses available on a first come, first serve basis.
