BEL AIR, Md - The blue lines wrap all around the store as folks at the Best Buy in Bel Air get ready for the madness.
Thousands of people are expected to come through these doors just between midnight and eight am on Black Friday as the sales season gets ready roll.
For many folks, spending time in line at Best Buy is as much of a Thanksgiving tradition as the turkey and watching that one uncle make a fool of himself.
And the first tent was pitched here on Monday, earlier than anyone here can remember.
With Best Buy and all the big stores opening their doors even earlier this year, it's a matter of getting people to shop early and shop often.
The guy who runs the place says it's time for controlled chaos.
As far as our early Best Buy camper, he's a little shy and didn't want to go on camera and actually had his daughter holding his spot while he went and took a shower.
He probably needed one as he’s been camping since Monday.
He's out there for his daughter, to get a nice new computer for when she goes to college next year.
Isegrau says they are very sensitive to the fact that this is family time for their employees so it's a matter of just working one shift so they can spend the time with family or shopping.
Best Buy opens up at midnight on Friday morning.
