Electronics are hot ticket items on Black Friday


It's that time of the year when retailers try to climb out of the red by getting you to spend your green. The holiday shopping season kicked off with Black Friday.

Best Buy opened at midnight. But, the first shoppers got in line at six o'clock p.m. Wednesday night!

Hundreds wrapped around the building, shivering in the cold, as they waited to get some big ticket items at bargain basement prices.

"Just a lot of gifts for a lot of people. It's the cheapest time to get them," said Valerielizbeth Villa, South Sioux City, NE.

"3-D Flat Screen, 55-inch t.v., another 55-inch t.v., a 40-inch t.v., and an X-Box as well," said Brennen Semple, South Sioux City, NE.

"The laptop, the Play Station 3," said Jim Symons, South Sioux City, NE.

"40-inch Toshiba," said Michael Brand, Sioux City.

"I came for the 50-inch, the 40-inch, a Galexy-S tab, and a computer," said Brenda Hernandez, South Sioux City, NE.

While it may have seemed chaotic inside, it's organized chaos. Best Buy has a tried and true system they've been using for years. They hand out tickets so people know if they're going to get what they came for. And they only let in 50 people at a time. So, no one got hurt and there weren't any problems with customers.
