I’m all for getting a good deal on Black Friday, but this is crazy! Saw this today on NEWSER:
Some stores are trying to resist Black Friday madness by refusing to open on Thanksgiving, but for die-hard shoppers, it’s never too early to get ready for the mega-sales. Take Vicky Torres and Juanita Salas, who were already bundled up and camped out in front of the Beaumont, Calif., Best Buy weeks before everyone starts defrosting their turkeys. They’ve been there since last Wednesday, ABC 7 reports, and they’re “good to go” for the duration, Torres says, with warm clothing, hot coffee, and food. “The point is to get the sales, because everybody is on a fixed income and we don’t have that kind of money to splurge,” says Salas’ husband, Jacob Alva.
