SPRINGETTSBURY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - At 8:30 Wednesday night Cole Feeser made his way to the Best Buy in Springettsbury Township. He has shopped on Black Friday or Gray Thursday for the last ten years and always spends the night outside the store. This year he was looking for a lot.

"Laptop, TV, tablets, movies, games, you name it," he said.

He even shops for family members who do not want to be out on Thanksgiving. His family is happy he does it, but Jake Meli's family did not approve of him standing in line from 6:30am on.

"Oh they’re very upset. But it’s okay cause it’s a deal. It’s okay. It’s worth it," said Meli.

Best Buy will stay open until 1:00am Friday and reopen at 8:00am. At any given time, over 500 people are in the store.
