With a quick glance of the parking lot, you can tell people were already in the stores very early Friday morning.

“The cars full, we have to go home unload and come back.” Yolanda said.

“Now we are at Kohl’s and the line is currently wrapped around the store.” Smith said.

And while some went to scan the stores for deals, others went shopping, because its tradition.

“My daughter and I used to do this when they first started black Friday. And so we've been doing it every year.” Yolanda said.

“I’ve been doing this with my mom for the last ten years. the last couple of years my brother and a friend have joined us.” Vitale said.

“People were absolutely crazy, it was freezing outside, there were people in shorts and tank tops, fighting to get through the lines.” Vitale said.

“We've probably saved over two thousand dollars this year and granted we’ve probably spent over three.” Vitale said.

“Everything’s been easy to find and good deals so it worked out well.” Durant said.
