(ABC 6 News) – Some stores in our area opened before the sun came up Friday morning as part of Black Friday.

Best Buy opened at 5 am. with a line waiting to get in, but the people at the front of the line said they got there just an hour before the doors opened.

No one camped out of the store the night before like in previous Black Fridays.

Over at Scheel’s, they opened its doors at 7 a.m.with deals on clothes, sporting goods, and more with a lot of people getting their Christmas shopping done.

"We didn’t go to bed last night so we’ve been up…I got everybody else’s presents done….I’m going to try to find a cowboy’s jersey, that’s what my brother wants," a shopper in Rochester said.

ABC 6 News was out at several stores Friday morning and at Best Buy. The big TVs seemed to go the quickest, while some people left the store empty-handed because they didn’t find what they were looking for.

The national retail federation predicts nearly 2 million more people will shop this weekend through Cyber Monday compared to last year.

They expect 108 million shoppers to shop just on Black Friday. But this isn’t the start of shopping for many people. The retail federation says 46-percent of people started their holiday shopping earlier this year than they typically do.
