It's the day most retailers and consumers dream of, Black Friday. Jamie Delaughter is not one of those consumers, he was out getting his shopping done Wednesday afternoon, hoping to avoid the crowds.
"I mean getting up early to try and get any kind of deal that you actually want, you have to be up at two o'clock in the morning and it's just not me," Delaughter said.
Managers at Lafayette's Best Buy are expecting others to take that early morning wake up call. The store is closed Thanksgiving Day, so employees had a lot to do Wednesday to prepare.
"It's very busy, obviously inventories are flowing in, getting ready for all the advertised events that are going to occur starting at 5 a.m. Friday morning," said Best Buy General Manager Daniel Sinitiere.
Best Buy in Lafayette will have security on hand for Thanksgiving Day, because in years past people have lined up that early to be the first inside the doors Friday morning.
