Determined bargain hunters are getting an early jump on Thanksgiving deals, long before the day ever arrives.
In Cabell County Tuesday night, they already were camping outside one of the retail stores, hoping to get a deal.
They were setting up tents and lawn chairs outside of the Best Buy in Barboursville. The determined shoppers had all of the amenities to wait for the sales to begin – cell phone chargers, Ipads and cots to sleep on through the night. The campers set up tents on Monday. By the time the store opens, it will be more than 75 hours camping on concrete for deals.
Two of the campers said they want to get their hands on the 40-inch big screen TV for less than $180, and a blue ray player at a discount price. Doors open midnight on Thanksgiving.
