Most of the people are making the best use of the discounts that are being offered at all the stores all over United States.

Many stores adhered to the age old custom of starting the offer right from Thursday, while several others opened their stores early in the morning to offer some unbelievable discounts, on the Thanks Giving Day. The early start combat the slumping economy and increase online sales. Toys R Us started the deal on Thursday night, while Old Navy remained open throughout Thanksgiving. Wrentham Outlets opened their parking lot at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, so that the shoppers could wait for the store to open at the midnight. These stores saw some of the earliest lines as the consumers believe that it tops the list of the Black Friday deal. Best Buy started at 7 a.m witnessed the customers sitting in queue, as they loved the offers applicable on laptops and other gadgets. This was even more intense in the Best By stores of Everett.

Herbergers started the sale at 3:00 a.m in the early morning with some of the best discounts in order to grab the maximum attention.

However, in spite of all the discounts and the offerings, things were not very comfortable. Most of the people had to stand of long queues and struggle against the huge crowd to grab their stuffs. This was more applicable on all those stuffs where discounts were being offered for a shorter period. One of the customers in New Hampshire said that it was crazy. She prefers not to come out anymore on Black Friday in future, for the unruly crowd.
