Montanans Begin Shopping for Deals Before Black Friday
Love it or hate it, there are just a few more hours until Black Friday. Several people have already begun shopping.
NBC Montana reports hundreds of people lined up outside of Missoula's Best Buy in the cold, waiting to get inside.
"I have four coats on all in all and a blanket and I brought some snacks just in case," said Darby resident Glenda Gosey.
Gosey has her own survival gear that she brought in order to stay warm. Waiting in the line is all for her eight-year-old.
"Our finances are kind of in a tight spot so we are able to do more for Christmas than we would be otherwise," said Gosey.
The line wrapped around part of the building. People covered themselves in their sleeping bags, bundled up in their blankets and others jumped up and down just to get warm.
Lea Miller was the first person to get in line. She started waiting at 7:30 in the morning. "I want the 55 inch Toshiba," said Miller.
She recently moved from Alaska and it cost quite a bit of money to get to Montana. "Anything I can do to make this a nice start to my boys new life here. If I got to stand out here at 7:30 in the morning, in 6 degrees, it's worth it," said Miller.
To stay warm, she's been walking around, or sitting down in her chair. She plans to get in and get out of the store. "I'm going home to spend time with my family where I should be," said Miller.
Best Buy is open until 1 a.m. on Friday. They have a little bit of a break until they reopen at 8 a.m.
