People begin lining up Tuesday for Black Friday shopping

(WEAU) – Black Friday is still days away, but there are people already ready to get the big deals.

At Best Buy in Eau Claire, the first Black Friday shoppers were already in line on Tuesday afternoon, camping on the concrete.

One of the campers says while they have a lot of time to kill, they won't exactly be roughing it. David Hurd from Eau Claire told us his group has “got a lot of people coming so I think we're bringing board games and cards. We're actually renting a generator so we'll probably set up a TV and an Xbox and have video games.”

And in case you were wondering, Best Buy opens at midnight on Black Friday, so those people will have spent more than 55 hours in line.
