Two California women have already arrived at a Beaumont Best Buy to begin their annual camp-out – 22 days ahead ofBlack Friday sales.
Vickey Torres of Cabazon and Juanita Salas of Beaumont arrived for their annual Black Friday camping set-up outside of the Beaumont Best Buy store,Banning-Beaumont Patch reports. The women plan to spend the full 22 days outside of the electronic retailer in hopes of landing the best deals for the infamous “first come, first served” Thanksgiving night rush.
“We could have started later, but then we wouldn’t be sure to get first in line,” Torres told Patch on Friday, as she and Salas sat under the hot sun in front of the Best Buy. “They only get a few items at the cheaper prices and it’s first come, first served.”
Torres and Salas said they have camped out in front of Best Buy for “the last few years,” with the two womentaking turns to go home and shower, eat.
Although deals for Best Buy’s Black Friday are yet to be released, Torres and Salas said they are ultimately looking to land a good deal on a television this year.
“Some people say we’re crazy,” said Torres, adding that such comments don’t bother her in the least.
