Black Friday shoppers surprised at lack of lines

Black Friday shoppers started early once again this year except, from the look of the lines at some local stores, it's not as bad as people expected.

AUSTIN - Black Friday bargain hunters headed to the stores early this year to snag some savings.

One shopper said he got in line at 5 a.m. to make sure he could get the best deal on a television from Best Buy.

“Now that I have a real job, money, now I see the value of getting things 60 percent off,” said Adryan Brown, who staked out a spot at Best Buy. “There's a television in here that I'm trying to get, 50-inch, $179. I can't pass that up.”

However, shoppers said they were pleasantly surprised by the lack of lines, even if they decided to skip their Thanksgiving meals for the deals.

“I'm also very impatient, I like things then, right now,” said Brown. “I have a bunch of friends who said I can wait until Cyber Monday, [but] I can't do the shipping, it's too much waiting.”

The store manager at Toys"R"Us said it was all hands-on-deck, and they will stay open until 11 p.m. on Friday.
