Freezing cold and sleep deprived, hundreds of eager shoppers lined up outside Best Buy on Route 29 this morning for the annual Black Friday fiasco, while the feint of heart stayed in bed.
"I've been out here since 4 o'clock and I'm waiting for my LCD TV," said Brian Henderson, who held the fifth place in line this morning.
And because most people here missed out their turkey dinner just to grab a spot in line pizza venders were out to provide some fuel.
While inside the store, over 60 employees formed a united front preparing for bargain hungry shoppers to pounce.
Then once the store door swung opened weary gadget gurus had at it and it didn't take long for the thrifty shoppers to nab their must haves.
"This was on sale for one hundred dollars each. We got a 37 inch TV right here that was 600. We got a few movies for $6.99. Can't beat that," said Andy Jenkins. He and his brother Troy toughed out the elements last night.
"I spent about a G maybe a G and a half," said Troy.
No matter how routine today's bargain blitz has become everyone was sure to leave here in high spirits toting their new toys, but they might be singing a different tune next month when their credit card statement comes in.
