"It's just the excitement, all the
deals you can get," said Donna Lively, a shopper gearing up for Black Friday this year.
Lively, like many others are not thinking of turkey and pumpkin pie this holiday season.
"I've been keeping a couple of the mail-in stuff that I've been getting and I'm going to go through that and kind of work out a strategy," said Floyd Graham.
A strategy to beat the crowds for Black Friday savings. Getting in line could in fact interrupt dinner this year, with some stores opening as early as 8 p.m. on Thursday.
"They are opening on Thanksgiving
because they know that there are millions of people who will be in line and who
want those deals," said Kathy Grannis, the Senior Director of Media Relations for the National Retail Federation.
Lines are already forming ahead of the bargain holiday and many say the savings are just part of all the excitement.
"It is, I get to watch my daughter so
she can get the grand babies stuff," said Lively.
Others say they won't be waiting in lines this year but are still hoping to cash in on some of the big savings.
"The stores now are doing a lot more on
the Internet so I'm going to see what they've got going on the Internet," said Graham.
Whether waiting in line or shopping online, the chance for savings on Black Friday is coming early this year.
Walmart in Augusta will open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thursday and Target at 9 p.m.
