Stores usually don't see shoppers until early Friday morning, but this year Black Friday deals came a day early.

A line wrapped around the building at Target in Duluth ahead of their early 8 p.m. opening Thursday. While there are many door-busting deals to be had, it's not all about the great prices for some.

"We got to see all the crazy people out on Black Friday," Levi Shrake said. "We go more for watching everybody and we'll get a few DVDs."

"I waited in line for about two hours and it was pretty fun," Jonah Sorell said.

Kohl's, the Miller Hill Mall and Best Buy also opened Thanksgiving day.

Best Buy opened at 6 p.m. and had more than a dozen people waiting in line Thursday afternoon.

Josh Clemond was the first in line showing up at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night. He and his brother used an ice house and heater to stay warm.

"We've been watching Netflix and stuff," Clemond said. "We played football last night at 4 a.m. That was pretty sweet."
