Thousands of shoppers lined up as early as 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving since several stores, like Walmart, Kmart, and Target decided to open their doors before friday actually began.

The long lines continued at check out. At Toys-R-Us shoppers took advantage of two door busters, the second wave of savings coming in at 5 a.m. Store shelves were cleared out as early as 2 am at Toys-R-Us. Despite the crowds many shoppers said getting out before dawn on Black Friday was worth it.

"We go through all the ads early on Thursday to figure out what we want and where we want to go...we may not end up at all the stores but we'll end up there at some point during the night," said Black Friday shopper, Tara Tipton.

Many people said they drove from over two hours away just to cash in on the savings. Major retail stores say Black Friday brings in tremendous revenue and also boosts the local economy by all the season workers that are needed.
