Overly-Enthused Customers Camping Out at Best Buy for Black Friday [VIDEO, POLL]

Camping Out
Fox 8

Black Friday can be crazy, which may be why some folks are going to extremes to make sure they don’t miss out on the deals.

A few die-hards in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio have begun camping out outside Best Buy — a full week before Black Friday.

Jonas Allooh was the first to arrive, setting up shop at 5 p.m. on Monday, the third year in a row he has done this. His tent comes with a bed, a microwave, a TV and heaters because, you know, it’d be crazy not to have the essentials when you camp out a full week before Black Friday like you’re a college student waiting for concert tickets.

Tony Avitar is situated right next to Allooh. It’s the 11th consecutive year he has pitched a tent outside the store:

I wanted to stop three or four years ago, and my kids make me do it because they like coming down. We usually have Thanksgiving dinner brought to the tent, so we’ll have a full spread in the tent, and it’s kind of my time with them.”

Fortunately, everyone on line has family and friends who swing by to hold down the fort, so they can do things like go to work and afford the marked-down merchandise they’re so intent on buying.

These deal-seekers already know what items they’d like to purchase, which is impressive when you consider Best Buy has not unveiled its price list for Black Friday.
