our paper said 10pm they open. We will not stand in the rain, so we are leaving a little after 930 :P

There's a point in your life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything. But it's not giving up... It's realizing that you don't need certain people, the bull, and the drama they bring

DH said manager said they only have 2 IPODS! Glad he's not there for one of those. Also, manager said he will be handing out tickets in about an hour....but he didn't say what for.

Niles, Il was to open at 10pm. At 10:30, there was a line out the door and around the building. Must be hundreds of people and they are only letting in so many at a time. Thanks, but no thanks.

The TRU near me (Portsmouth, NH) was packed. The line was at least a quarter mile long. The manager said that they could only allow 50 people in the store at a time. Even with the store being disorganized, things went pretty smooth and I got all the things I wanted.

At a little after 8 pm cst there was way over 100 people in line at my local TRU. And the parking lot was nearly full, I'm sure lots other people were waiting in their cars.

Any update on the Santa Sing-A-Ma-jigs? Did they only have a few or were there plenty? Just curious. Thanks!

Went back out at 3:30... the parking lot looked a whole lot different... no lines, the place was reasonable busy but not crowded, got what i wanted (surprisingly they had any left). The cashiers were actually waiting for people to come up. Chatted with the clerk for a bit about the rush earlier. Now if all BF's could be like that LOL

was #100 in line @ 7:45 (in the rain!!) manager came down line handing out tickets for netbooks, ipods, etc. counted groups of 50, let first group in at 10pm, 3 mins later next group, every 3 mins let 50 in until they reached 300 then waited 15 mins before 50 more entered. I was only interested in toys for ages 4 and under and manage to get what was on my list, saved $160 so it was worth it!!

The line was so long out here that we did not get inside until after 11! But I got EVERYTHING I went for and saved a fortune so it was worth standing in the cold rain! I think TRU had the fastest, most organized cashiers out of ANY store this weekend! I was VERY impressed how well they handled a crowd twice the size of Best Buys!

At the TRU in Dallas they called the police since several women started to fight. When the police got there they started to only let 20 people in at a time. In another city one woman threatened to pull a gun on people if they did not let her cut in line.

:( These are the ppl that give us a bad name. What could have been so valuable to her that called for that?

If people actually watched for deals year round there would not be such mass hysteria on BF as they'd know a good deal from a lukewarm one.
