Black Friday shoppers wrapped up their Thanksgiving early in order to make it out to their favorite stores before all the best items were gone.
Stores like Best Buy opened at 5 p.m. on Thursday evening and closed at 1 a.m. before reopening at 8 a.m. on Friday.
Loise Sanchez has been participating in Black Friday shopping with her family for the past five years and says her best tip is to make sure you've already searched online for which deals your favorites stores will be offering, so you can be in and out as quickly as possible.
"We just go in and get what we want and we're out of here," added Sanchez.
Best Buy offered customers the option to claim a ticket for a specific item before the store opened to help guarantee those waiting long lines would be able to benefit from the deals they came in for.
