Some things are more important than buying essentials, such as food with a $1,200 stimulus check.

On the first day after the coronavirus lockdown was lifted in Georgia, an estimated 300 people lined up outside a shoe store in Atlanta to be the first to purchase a pair of Air Jordans.

Shoppers formed 2 lines outside the store in southwest Atlanta to buy the new Air Jordan 5 "Fire Red" sneakers. Some wore face masks, according to 11Alive News.

Teenagers and adults stood patiently in line outside Jimmy Jazz's shoe store at Greenbriar Mall, according to NBC producer Charlie Gile.

"Here's what it looked like as Jimmy Jazz's doors opened at Greenbriar Mall in Atlanta. Everyone I talked to was in line for a new Air Jordan 5 that sold out online," Gile tweeted on Saturday.

Atlantans took advantage of the warm weather to sunbathe in parks and at Lake Lanier's man-made beach north of Atlanta. Others gathered at Piedmont Park in midtown to watch the famous U.S. Air Force Thunder Birds and Navy's Blue Angels put on an air show overhead.

Few people in the crowd complied with the coronavirus social distancing guidelines.

Gov. Brian Kemp, who lifted the lockdown restrictions on Friday, urged the crowds to maintain a safe distance.

"Stay at least six feet from other people, do not gather in groups, stay out of crowded places, and avoid mass gatherings," a press statement from Kemp's office said.
