I drove bye the Richmond, VA best buy and circuit city at 8:30 and the line was around the building at best buy and about 15 at cc. This is the chesterfield location. I think it is around 65 degrees.

My wife, her mom and sister went to get online at Circuit City at 10:30 and there was already 30 people ahead of them. Last year they were first in line when they arrived at 10:30.

Drove by BB at about 8:00 tonight and there were already about 20 people and a few police cars by the entrance! And this is at a smaller volume store than most!

Thanks for saving me the trip. I was debating on heading out myself but if its this long a line at Best Buy the night before, I'll pass on getting involved this year.

As of 8 pm, in Allentown, PA, there was 30 people in line for CC (3 in a huge tent) and easily 150+ in line at Best Buy (lots of tents at BB).

Tonight's lows will be in the 40s (45 right now) and a WICKED wind! Posted Image

Yeah, the Kennesaw store will get packed. I might stop in there tomorrow late morning to see if there are any DVDs left. No way was I gonna camp there with friends being home from college and stuff. Especially sicne there wasn't much that was just eye popping.

There were about 50 in line and a TV crew at the Tenleytown Best Buy in DC around 10:45. It is in the mid 40s and the wind has finally begun to die down.

I just got a text update from my husband (who is currently 10th in line at CompUSA - been there for about an hour or so). At CompUSA there are less than 20 people in line. We drove around there at 6pm and there were 15, but some or all of those must have went into the 9-12 sale. The line for the Best Buy is wrapped around the building! This is in the Robinson area of Pittsburgh.

Good luck everyone, I'm going to go to bed and leave the 20 degree temperatures for the people who are way more brave than I am.

I left the Compusa in Baton Rouge. LA about 30 minutes ago, and the line was still wrapped along the side of the building. They started letting people in around 8:40ish, and are letting them in a group at a time. Midnight may come and go and some of those people may not get in!! There were quite a few people at best buy, but they were all huddled up on the ground and the line of shopping carts obscured my view.
Live. Love. LEARN.

baton rouge...BB has around 200+, dh said. He's #4. It's in the 30's tonight with high winds. Some people hardly brought anything for warmth. One man I watched dropped his teenage boy off with a hoodie, shorts, about 4 candy bars at noon today!!! He's going to have a rough night!

Can someone tell me why there's so many people that go to Best Buy? I didn't think their sales were that great...did I miss anything?

Went by our Best Buy at 9:30 and there were already 15-20 tents set up and people lined up behind the tents. Target had about 6 people. Staples had a couple of tents and about four other people. :yup: Not sure if we will even be going out now. :no:

Just passed by the Circuit city at union square in Manhattan there were easily 30+ people online there as of 2230. Anyone who comes now will most likely not even have a chance at any of the big doorbuster items which is kind of scary!
