ROCK HILL, S.C. —
People started lining up at a Best Buy store at 8 a.m. Wednesday. They'll stay in that line through the Thanksgiving holiday, tolerating 35-degree weather overnight.
Edwin Albeno is bundled up and focused on Black Friday.
"I'm going to get a few electronics. A computer, TV. Just a few (things) that we need,” he said.
He and other die-hard shoppers started lining up at the Rock Hill Best Buy to cash in on Black Friday sales.
"For me, it’s fine. I don't mind doing it,” Albeno said.
This year, many stores will open earlier than ever before -- offering deep discounts on clothing, electronics, and even never seen before items.
New Retro 4 Air Jordans will be unveiled at several area stores this weekend.
Last year, Channel 9 showed the chaos after crowds rushed area malls when the Air Jordan Retro Concord was released.
Some shoppers were hurt and officers were called out to three local malls for disturbances.
Police said Wednesday they're adding extra staff to ensure it doesn't happen again.
As for the crowds camping out Wednesday, they have about 24-hours ahead of them. The Best Buy store is slated to open midnight Friday.
