Shoppers take advantage of Thanksgiving Day deals

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - It wasn't long after some folks finished their Thanksgiving meal before they rushed out to take advantage of early bird deals.

They bundled up in coats, hats and blankets just to stay warm.

The line outside Belk Department Store at Hamilton Place Mall grew longer by the minute of people waiting to take advantage of Thanksgiving Day deals.

Jennifer Quales calls herself an expert Black Friday shopper and says you've gotta have a plan if you want a good deal.

“My sister and I have a game plan. We're all set up at different stores for different sales. It wasn't my choice, it was my sister's choice,” she said.

As soon as the clock struck 6:00 p.m. the doors opened and eager shoppers filed in.

Randy Malone ventured out with his wife by decided to skip the line.

“We came in the side door when they opened it. We came walking in. Some people came running in. We didn't run, we walked. I stayed and videoed while she rummaged through everything,” he added.

Many shoppers made a b-line to the escalator, down to the first floor, for one sale that sounded too good to be true.

“The door-buster $19 boots!” Malone said.

 Giving these early birds a head start on the holiday shopping season.
