Black Friday is getting a head start this year.
Popular stores like JCPenney, Kohl's and Toys"R"Us opened at 5 p.m and Target is opening at 6 p.m.
"We got here early at 8:30 p.m. cause the store was still open, and I asked the lady what time should I camp out," said Yovani Perez, a shopper at Best Buy.
"They told us they only have a limited amount of tvs and they don't last for very long after they open the store," said Edgar Leon, another shopper at Best Buy.
Some stores open early so shoppers don't have to camp out in the cold for long, but some shoppers couldn't resist.
"We grabbed some blankets and rushed over here and we just set up camp," said Perez.
Some of the first shoppers on line have been here since the night before.
"We got here early to get a laptop, 4k TV," said Eduardo Mendoza, a shopper at Best Buy.
At Target in Chico, the line was just starting to form around 2 p.m.
"I only waited for four hours, but I can't imagine waiting for two days, there's no way I would do that," said Christopher Jones, a shopper at Target.
If you're thinking about participating, you better get ready to head out the door. Crowds are building in each of the Black Friday stores and parking is very difficult.
