This isn't your ordinary camping trip. These young shoppers decided to spend their Thanskgiving Day, waiting in front of Best Buy early. . .20 hours early.
"We got here at 9 o'clock this morning. . .Our family has Thanksgiving on wednesday, so we can come out here and get good deals," said Zach Young.
The electronics giant is scheduled to open its doors at 5am Friday. Is it worth the wait?
"Saving like 500 bucks for every big ticket item you buy. I mean, that's a lot of money," Young said.
Getting some killer deals on some computers. We all want laptops," his friends added.
They even brought along their own food supply. There is, of course, another way to beat the rush. Several shoppers looked to gobble up some Thanksgiving Day deals. For the second year, Sports Authority stayed open until 3pm.
"25 percent off a 140 dollar shoe? I'm going to take it," Greg Felder said.
"We found out last year that staying open helps our business and helps the customers get in so they can beat the Thanksgiving rush or the Black Friday rush the next day," said Nathan Camack, the assistant manager at Sports Authority.
It was still slow going for most the Central Coast. Empty parking lots filled many places, as retailers traditionally closed their doors in preparation for the annual shopaholic showdown known as Black Friday.
