Shoppers In Line Ready For Some Bargains

ODESSA - Some people after eating their Thanksgiving dinner probably didn't stick around to help clean up, instead they went to stand outside the doors of their favorite store to find some deals.

"This is our third year," Brittney Fierro, a shopper in line, said.

Fierro and her family have made standing in lines for Black Friday Deals a family tradition. She says sometimes they don't have time to eat all their Thanksgiving meal at home so they take it to go.

"We literally eat and then come out here. We brought dessert with us," Fierro said.

Some customers have been in line for hours, enough time so they can think of what to grab once the doors open up.

"The Beats headphones and the 50 inch TV," Fierro said.

"The Xbox, we want to get it for my son and this is actually the only one that has a good deal on it," Shelly Fuentes, another shopper in line, said.

For some shoppers in line, they plan to make multiple stops at different stores in order to get that special gift for their loved ones.

"After Target, I am going to Wal-Mart. Then tomorrow (Friday) morning, I'll hit the store at 5 o'clock in the morning, I'll be at the Mall in Midland," Fuentes said.

"Go in there get our T.V.  and then I guess my daughter, she wants an iPad at Wal-Mart, so then we are gonna run to Wal-Mart see what kind of deals we get there," Juanita Braun, another shopper in line, said.

From pros to amateurs, everyone has a game plan to get what they want.

"Are you guys gonna have a game plan she going to go one way and you another way? NewsWest 9 asked.

"She is my pusher, I am the goer," Fuentes said.

"We all go different places, everyone goes different," Fierro said.

NewsWest 9 asked one shopper why would she rather stand in line for hours instead of spending time with her family.

"I already spent time with my family. I need some time away from my family, this is my sanity right here, shopping. Shopping is my sanity that's why I am here," Fuentes said.
