Black Friday sales in stores across Santa Clarita Valley have resulted in residents camping out in tents, cots, and pop-ups as their occupants await for the early morning savings following Thanksgiving.

  1. Idiots there’s no need to camp out anymore

  2. And even then when they had midnight openings it still wasn’t worth it

  3. “i have no responsibilities and I also don’t know what the internet is”

  4. And Best Buy? Idiots…

    Walmart is open today if you really want to shop without camping. It’s cause of these idiots that retail stores are making their minimum wage employees work on Thanksgiving spending time away from friends and family.

  5. Sad that this is what Thanksgiving has become to some…

    • Agreed! I was talked into going once with my SIL, I hate to shop so never again! The way people were rushing around acting like total fools. And they are choosing this over a day of thanksgiving and family.

  6. Karenn Benites De Murillo

  7. Kim Wickers Kim Wickers says:

    Seriously?? There’s nothing I would do that for…..get a life!!

    • Maybe if you pocketed a few thousand bucks by waiting outside for a few hours? These are flippers, not people who desperately need a cheap tv. They’re well organized groups.

  8. I rented a bear costume and I’m going to ravage thru the tents! Lol

  9. Apparently, they have nothing much to be thankful for on Thanksgiving other than some discounted electronics. SMH

  10. These campers buy up the discounted TV’s that are in store only and sell them at 2x what they pay to their friend who owns a shop that’ll charge 3x what they paid their friend. The big box retailer needs to pad their sales stats. It’s all part of what makes the world go ’round.

  11. Time camping out for electronics or spending time with family 🤔

  12. I bet none of these people have ever been to a PTA meeting

    • Chad Holzer Chad Holzer says:

      I’m taking Blake out to see the chaos and show him how grown adults act over a sale price. The camera will be rolling and I will hold it sideways. Get your popcorn ready!

  13. Kj Allen Kj Allen says:

    So ‘stuff’ is more important than family and friends. Sad .

  14. Kyle Sutton Kyle Sutton says:

    Anyone ever think that these people may be single with no family and want a damn cheap tv?
    Ain’t nothin wrong with a good deal!

  15. Anny Meza Anny Meza says:

    Instead of complaining about other people tell us about who you will be spending time with today? I will be with my mom my brother and my boyfriend and it will be great<3

  16. Ana Flath Ana Flath says:

    They where there since Monday night !

  17. Willy Jay Willy Jay says:

    Being homeless on thanksgiving

  18. Scott Murphy Scott Murphy says:

    That’s just plain stupid

  19. JCPennys opened at 2 today…it’s not really black Friday anymore. Just not the same.

  20. Why all the judgment with what others do with there time? Seriously?

  21. And it’s HOTTER THAN HELL OUT HERE!!

  22. Best buy has had black Friday deals all month. I bought my laptop 2 weeks ago for the black Friday price

  23. Jason Cobain Jason Cobain says:

    You can cover more ground if you fly your drone inside the store

  24. I never understood the whole camping out thing on Black Friday. Unless some new toy or video game is coming out I don’t see a reason for it. In the amount of time spent you could just get a job and buy what you are waiting for. I do remember years ago people camping out for the nintendo Wii

  25. Richard says:

    Who cares what these people choose to do?? Continue to shake your head at things “you” don’t approve of. Get off your high horse, because judging people about shopping practices and your comments on here are really the sad part of the story here.

  26. Another reason we moved out of CA! 4th generation CA out of there. Haven’t looked back.

    • Richard says:

      Um..ah….maybe, in case you didn’t know, this happens in a lot of other states besides California and probably even the state that you moved too.

  27. cBrown says:

    Black Friday: Because only in America, people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have.

  28. I worked at PETCO next door for 9 years and watched every single year as idiots lined up for it. When there were never that many people there anyways.

  29. John Gilbert John Gilbert says:

    I was pulling into the shopping center parking lot and passed a man holding a sign saying , “WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY ?”. I thought… “IN LINE AT BEST BUY !” 8-)

  30. Chinkie Paye Chinkie Paye says:

    I don’t believe people should be allowed to camp out at all . Go to the store when they open . Shop like everyone else . If you get that sale item , fine . If not too bad .
