Shoppers Crowd Best Buy for Thanksgiving Sales
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- Diehard shoppers camped out in front of the Best Buy near Easton for nearly a week before Thanksgiving.
About a hundred people lined up outside before the doors opened at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving day. These shoppers braved frigid temperatures to get discounts on TVs, tablets and other electronics.
"It's been pretty brutal," said Greg Brannon, who has been camped out since Monday. "It gets down to 15, 17 degrees at night. It gets down right cold."
A few savvy shoppers at the front of the line used a heater to stay warm.
People quickly filed in when the doors opened.
"It was chaotic," said Ebony Steele, "I had to runaround and find (what I was looking for)."
In the end, shoppers said dealing with the freezing cold temperatures was worth it.
"It's nice to come out and see all these people out," said shopper Michael Catania. "Everything seems to be running smoothly. I like it. I might come out and do it next year."
