Shoppers line up outside stores in the Dakotas

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- Shoppers hoping to get a good deal on Black Friday have already started lining up outside stores in North Dakota and South Dakota.

Instead of spending their Thanksgiving eating turkey with family and friends, some dedicated shoppers are spending the day camping outside stores.

KELO-TV in Sioux Falls reports that people started lining up outside the Best Buy at about 1 p.m. Wednesday. The first three tents set up belong to one family, who are taking turns holding down the small tent city. David Havermann says the first people in line often don't have to deal with confrontations with other shoppers.

In Fargo, WDAY reports that a group of students from North Dakota State University are camping outside a Best Buy in hopes of getting a good deal on TVs.
