You know the saying, "the early bird catches the worm," but how about something else instead. Like a Lap Top, TV, or Digital Camera?

The Black Friday line at Best Buy in Dothan began forming as soon as Thanksgiving dinner was done.

"What was it like standing in line for 6 hours? Pretty Tiresome, but we had a good time," said Doug Faulk, a Black Friday shopper.

Retailers across the nation depend on Black Friday to bring the green and with 2008's struggling economy, the only thing that can be done is to stay optimistic.

Best Buy District Services Manager, John Hah said, "Every year, it seems like the lines get bigger, We won't know until the customers all go through the door and head over to the register, but we are well stocked and ready to go."

Best Buy wasn't the only destination, other stores at the Dothan Pavilion had their fair share of customers- including Target. Which created a massive line. Wiregrass Commons Mall was also bustling.

"They have been getting ready for the last couple of weeks to tell you the truth, and they have marked down their prices, and I think today is going to be a great day to bring those sales out," said Lynne Dickerson Marketing Director of Wiregrass Commons Mall.

And it doesn't matter if customers are shopping in the outdoor stores or the indoor malls, they are all looking for the same thing.

Dickerson said, "They are just looking for those special sales and discounts,"

If you did not come out Friday morning, stores across Dothan will be having sales all month and many will have extended hours. The Wiregrass Commons will be closing at 10 and opening at 8 this season.
