Best Buy Shoppers in Kennewick Start Shopping At 5 a.m. On Black Friday
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Five in the morning for these people means the wait is over, and it's time to shop.
But don't be fooled. They may seem like they're just looking for a good deal. Truth is, most of these shoppers already know what they're after.
"Cd's, movies, laptop, cameras," said one woman.
"Maybe a stereo, or maybe a video game for myself," said one man.
"We're looking for some things for the Wii, and maybe some music," said another shopper.
But others just wouldn't share.
"Can't tell you, because my kids might see this , it's top secret!," said one woman.
At the register, they paid cash, credit, or checks. Anything to get those long lines moving fast.
"Kind of a pain for me, I don't like dealing with all the extra traffic and crowds, I guess that's the price you pay for having a good sale," said one man.
And shoppers weren't the only ones smiling at the prices.
"This is what we all live for in retail, is Black Friday, to see everybody come in, to see everybody get the great deals that they're looking for," said Lisa Kelleher, General Manager at Best Buy in Kennewick.
And for the early birds, camping out nearly 24 hrs in advance.
"I wouldn't do it personally, but I hope they got what they were looking for," said one woman.
And if they didn't find it, at least they got a little something to keep them warm.
"I personally stopped by and checked on them, brought them coffee yesterday, so they a great time, they love it," said Kelleher.
