Midlands shoppers camping out to grab the best deals of the year

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

As Thanksgiving creeps closer, some people have their eyes set on the day after. Those Black Friday deals are luring for many especially those who are already lining up and braving the cold.

Area stores are stocking up the shelves and getting ready for the rush.

Josh, Kristen and Justin have been firmly planted with their heated tent outside of a Best Buy at Harbison Blvd.

The group has been there since 10 a.m. Wednesday and is hoping to score tablets and a TV when the doors open.

Short of the excitement of Black Friday outside the store, the store manager at Best Buy says they are ready when the store opens Thursday night.

"I'm very excited about it as our all of our employees," says Chris Popa, assistant manager of Best Buy. "Very excited about the customers coming in, the great deals that we have for them. It's a lot of fun, a lot of people coming in for holiday shopping and they are exited to be here and we are very excited to be here to help them."
