“We’re gonna shop here and then we’re gonna go to Maine and shop when they open at 12:01,” said Hilton.

“We ate at one. We had a nice dinner at one, kids took off and then mommy took off,” she explained.
“The savings, I noticed are good. Just to me, like watching budget it’s worth it. I know some people say I’m crazy but it is worth it.”
Across town, Kohl’s opened its doors at 5 p.m. and Best Buy opened an hour later.
Walmart has been open since Thursday morning, but the biggest deals there began at 6 p.m.
“I think it’s fun. Just an adrenaline rush trying to get whatever you want,” said Kyle Panas.
Jim Panas said he was looking for a TV at Walmart because Best Buy lines were too long.
