SPARKS, NV- Shoppers who waited outside of the Target in Sparks on Thanksgiving night got the go-ahead to move in at midnight. After bagging their deals, some headed to Best Buy which also opened at 12am. That's why 5 hours later, it was pretty calm at the registers. But with the sun out not long afterwards, Black Friday morning was still young.

"I kind of got roped into this," said Tim Nunn, a shopper who was waiting outside of R.C. Willey in South Reno before it opened on Black Friday. Nunn said he got there at 11:30 the night before. He wanted to get a special deal on a tablet.

While electronics were the biggest draw at R.C. Willey, some came to get doorbuster savings on furniture.

"Actually, I will be saving $2,000," said Cammien Franklin, who stood in line before dawn to get a good deal on a bed. "So it's worth it. Just rolling out of bed, no makeup. It was worth it!"

When the clock struck 8am, the store started letting people inside. The line had wrapped around the building.

At the Summit, a line formed outside of the Hollister store. The place was so packed inside, teens were forced to wait outside until the crowd cleared.

"I'm pretty tired," said Lindsey Weekly, who waited outside. "We've been up since 11:30 yesterday. We did Meadowood and Wal-Mart and Target and Kohl's. And J.C. Penney and American Eagle and everything else."
