As darkness set in the lines drew larger. More and more stores opened their doors earlier than ever this year for Black Friday. Best Buy in Bowling Green opened at midnight. Many customers slept overnight Wednesday to grab their spot in line.

"It was cold but I had like 6 or 7 sleeping bags one on top of the other so I felt cold but I warmed up eventually," says James Kenney.

Customers in line missed the traditional Thanksgiving but say as long as they get what they came for they're happy.

"I say it's worth it. I mean my whole family couldn't be in town this year we figured we needed a new tv so it would be nice to get it," says Kenney.

But not everyone was in line were waiting to purchase an item.

"My best friend invited me and I wanted to get out of the house," says Brandi Phillips.

While those at Best Buy waited outside, customers at Target were already inside as the store opened at 9 p.m. With shopping starting earlier each year some customers hope stores return to their early morning hours.

"Actually I kinda liked it the other way I didn't like have to come in early because it kinda cut family time and eating you know rush to get started," says Tamra Carter.

Although the wait to check-out wrapped around the store, almost out the door, many still had a smile on their face.

"It's just fun to get out and see everybody you know run into everybody and you know fight over those good deals," says Carter.

More deals are to be had with more sales expected this weekend.
