KENNEWICK, WA - Some shoppers start extra early for Black Friday, camping out in order to get a good spot in line.

In Kennewick, tents were outside the Best Buy on Canal Drive several days in advance of their 6:00 opening Thursday evening.

The first person in line was 20-year-old Oscar Perez of Kennewick who pitched his tent Tuesday morning to guarantee a good spot to get a good deal on several TVs and laptops.

"My 1st job, I got hired back in May and I immediately told them "Hey, there's three days out of the year I'm going to need off for sure.  Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday right before Black Friday," says Perez.

Oscar also says he plans for Black Friday a year in advance and saves up his spare change all year.  He goes back to work early Friday morning.
