Black Friday lines starting to form

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - People are beginning to line up to try and out-wait the competition to get the best Black Friday deals.

This afternoon, there were only 3 groups and 5 people in line at Best Buy in Lufkin and Ben Oliver from Nacogdoches is first in line. Oliver says this is his first Black Friday and he is going to get a 50 inch TV for $399.

Oliver says he feels special to be #1 especially since some people in other cities like Houston have been camped out since Monday.

Oliver said, "I thought I would be on down here. I'm from Nacogdoches and I got here at 10:30 this morning and I'm kinda in awe that there was no one here."

Ben won't be waiting alone for long his wife will join him later this evening with her own Black Friday agenda and she'll also bring him a plate of Thanksgiving dinner.
