While some of us are at home enjoying Thanksgiving with family, others are already camping out to get their hands on Black Friday sales. We look at what some Black Friday shoppers and stores are preparing for.
Outside the Best Buy in Brownsville people have decided to forego their Thanksgiving at home and are ready to stand in line for Black Friday deals.
Shopper Jesus Banda says he is going to by a laptop computer and a television. If it is possible
Fellow shopper, Dayna Richardson said to make sure to get those televisions. They have a great price right now.
The chances of getting hands on those TV’s are high for Dayna Richardson whose tent has been set up first in line. Someone else even tried to bribe her with turkey just to cut line with her later.
Best Buy Store Manager Joe Cuevas says, “We felt as a company this was the right thing to do. People enjoy Thanksgiving with their families and then come in the afternoon over here, walk it off and work it off.
Take a look at the item, it’s already online, make their advanced routes how they’re going to get here because there’s going to be a big crowd. To make sure that they’re prepared make a list of what they want.”
All an effort to avoid chaos and violence, Dayna hopes there’s no repeat of last year.
Dayna Richardson added, “I was getting a TV and a lady took it from me! I was like come on! There’s more right there!”
Joe Cuevas adds, “It’s very important on ticket items, there is a limited amount so it’s going to be very important they get here early, so I’m just going to invite everybody to Brownsville and enjoy the shopping with us.”
If you want to avoid the Black Friday lines and crowds altogether, Cyber Monday and its online shopping deals are just around the corner.
