SPOKANE VALLEY - More and more people are opting out of Black Friday and looking for the best bargain online or even on Thanksgiving after eating dinner. Still, the National Retail Federation projects that shoppers will buy more on Black Friday than Cyber Monday or Thanksgiving.
The line at the Best Buy in Spokane Valley started out fairly small Friday morning but by the time the store opened at 8:00 a.m. there were a few hundred people waiting to get their hands on a 55 inch 4k flat screen television.
Casey Clark brought her family in to town last night to get up early for the very best deals in town. She says Black Friday is a family tradition that won't change any time soon.
"We usually don't do (our shopping) the night before. We usually keep that about family and dinner. This year we did sneak in to town and stay up because we thought there would be bad weather or fog on the way. We stayed over night and got up early to be here," said Clark as she and her family struggled to stay warm in front of Best Buy.
