Black Friday Begins

The line outside Best Buy on Thanksgiving afternoon was small by Black Friday standards but shoppers were still out early looking for the first spot in line.

Some even showed up Wednesday night, a full day before Thanksgiving. One shopper said, "I've been here in the Black Friday line since last night, about 9 o'clock. I don't want to miss the good stuff."

Others didn't feel the need to be first through the door, but still showed up long before nightfall on Thursday afternoon. 

Shoppers told us they were most interested in TVs and other electronics. Abdul Musa said, "I'm hoping to get the TV which is supposed to be $800 on a regular day and I'll get it for half off, so pretty good deals standing out here."

TVs and computers are only some of the items expected to fly off the shelves, as experts predict 60% of American adults plan to shop on Black Friday weekend. Combine all that shopping and the Consumer Electronics Association expects people to spend $362 billion this weekend, a 6% increase over last year.
