COBB COUNTY, Ga. -

Some people have already begun camping out for Black Friday deals.  Nearly a dozen tents were up at a Best Buy in Kennesaw by Tuesday nights.

The first tent went up early Monday morning. That person was too shy to talk to FOX 5 on camera, but his family said he's camped out for a 60-inch television.

Samantha Key, the ninth person in line, said that she doesn't mind spending a few nights out in the cold to garner big savings inside. She said she wanted a 40-inch TV. She said a friend was helping her hold the spot in line until Thursday.

CJ Brye said he's made camping out a holiday tradition. Brye, who said he wants a 70-inch TV, said that he's found big savings over the years.

"I've gotten a tablet, laptops, TVs as well," said Brye.

Best Buy will offer "doorbusters" starting at midnight on Friday. The store will hand out tickets to those in line at 10 p.m.
