Shoppers camp out on the eve of Black Friday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -People were already in line at the Lubbock Best Buy Thanksgiving Day in hopes of being first in line for Black Friday savings.  NewsChannel 11 talked to a few of these shoppers. 

"What are you waiting to buy?"  One shoppers answer was, "I'm waiting to buy an HP laptop."

Another shopper said, "Yeah I'm gonna get me a laptop, 200 bucks." Our NewsChannel 11 photojournalist had heard there only five such laptops, and asked about it. "Aw, there's gonna be more than five.  If there's five, somebody's gettin' hurt."

"What are you here for?" "The Sony Vaio laptop, save about $600," said another shopper. 

"What are y'all here for?"  The first answer was, "Yeah, we're in line for the bathroom." And then the more serious answer was, "We're here for probably a desktop and a phone."
