Best Buy had lines of people again Thanksgiving Week for Black Friday. The first person in line was Ivan Gutierez and his family.
Best Buy is best known for its sales on electronics. Ivan and his family camped out in front of Best Buy for these deals since the Saturday of the week before Thanksgiving, taking “shifts for bathroom breaks.”
They were camping for deals on TVs, Laptops, and other electronics. Ivan said, “We are buying these things for both ourselves and for investment.” An anonymous person in line said, “I come to buy TVs and sell them for a profit.”
Since it was Thanksgiving that day, Ivan and his family had their Thanksgiving dinner in the Best Buy line. Gutierez said, “We had our own Thanksgiving but it was the same as others. We had our dinner, family, and thanks.”
How was Best Buy and the line after it opened?
The line had around 1,000 people from start to finish as soon as it opened. One hour later, people kept coming. The line still had 1,000 people even when they had that many customers inside the store. The checkout line stretched almost to the back of the store.
There were no fights over items, like occurrences at many other stores across the nation, and overall Black Friday at Best Buy was calm.
