    Not sure when they open but guessing 6 or 7 am. So… 1 – 2 hours before will probably get you there. If they are 24 hour and they begin at midnight, then the store wouldn’t actually close… so not sure how they’d handle that.

    It depends on how populous your area is and how many of the item you want they plan to have in stock. Usually, the local flier will say “Limit 5 per store” on big ticket items like TVs.

    If that is they case, you want to be serious about getting there early. The older generation takes Black Friday seriously and tend to wake up earlier anyway. When the Playstation 2 came out and our Wal-mart was getting a shipment of only 20 for Black Friday, my mother-in-law got there at 4 am and was still about the 25th person in line.

    Depending on when Target opens I would say probably no later than 3 a.m. One year my sister and I wanted a TV for our dad. We got to Target at about 3:30 a.m. and there was already a huge line. By the time we pushed ourselves to the Electronics department all of the TV’s we wanted were sold out. To add to the story my sister got pushed over by a cart and broke her ankle. No one would let us through because of the chaos. FYI the emergency room is one of the only dead places at 5:00 a.m. on black Friday.

    Since there are four of you, I would say as soon as you get in the store split up. Each person should take a different route to the electronics department. Usually the direct walkway is so packed you will not be able to move. Have someone dart through housewares and keep your phones on you so you can meet up quickly.

    Good luck! I wish you the best!

    Amazon open their Black Friday sales now. Here they said:

    “You shouldn’t have to stand in a long line to get a great deal. We’re searching for the best Black Friday deals everywhere–including deals other stores are planning–so we can meet or beat their prices and bring them to you even earlier. These limited-supply offers will go quickly but we’ll add new ones throughout the day, every day this week, so you can skip the long lines and still save a bundle”

    I’d say line up as early as 1am.

    My next door neighbor works at Best Buy and told me that people usually get there around 6pm the night before. I’m going this year, and I’m planning on going around 4pm.

    The last time I waited out at Circuit City I got there around 10pm, and would have had my laptop but the people in the front of the line had so many of their friends cut in line later in the morning that I got pushed from like 10th in line to 20+ and didn’t get it.

    Thus, don’t go to the stores it’s to crazy you waste hours in line, just shop online, they have the same deals without the crowds, just have a look at the following link:

    If anyone is interested i recently came across a Black Friday Gift Poll where you can just give your opinion as a yes or no. And in return you will be given the chance to receive a game console of your choice and the modern warfare game.

    Some people start camping out from the night before if they know’s there’s a very particular bargain they want to pick up. I’d definitely get there by about 3 in the morning. I read on http://blackfridaybestbuy2009.wordpress.com/ that places like Target, KMart, Best Buy are planning to open their doors at 5 or 6 in the morning. As for Walmart – well, they’re doing the 24 hours a day thing.

    Get there early!

    Last year my mom and I went to the mall at 12 midnight which is 3 blocks away from my house. After shopping for 2 hrs, we were heading home and saw that the line for target was very long. It was just 2am and target opened at 4…so I suggest that if you buying to be in line by 12am.
