When the doors opened at 12 a.m. on Black Friday at Best Buy, Paul Loung had already been standing in line for a while

"18 hours total," Loung said.

He was the first one in line, he got here at 6 a.m.

He wouldn't give up his spot because he said he had more choices than the rest.

"It feels great," he said.

Susan Whitesel was right behind Loung.

She wanted the deals from Best Buy, but she's also went to other stores.

"We've been back and forth from Walmart, getting their deals too," Whitesel said.

Stores like Walmart started Black Friday at 8 p.m. on thanksgiving night.

By midnight, Jeremy Kinsey had already gone to five stores.

It's kinda nice, it spreads it out because everybody opened at different times so you're able to hit a bunch of different stores," he said.

He joined more than 300 people in line at Best Buy.

DVDs were some of the items people waited for outside of best buy, but for some the wait was actually a good thing.

For some teens, the lines are a good opportunity to make some extra cash.

They sold hot chocolate for a dollar.

"We made about four gallons and this is actually our second cooler of it and we are down our last bit of this so we are doing pretty well for ourselves," Stapel said.

But some shoppers like Tommy Michael more people bring more trouble.

"It's really aggravating because we'll tell them to stop cutting but a whole bunch of them will come at one time and then sneak in one at a time. Now they're all getting TV's that we want," Michael said.
