The tents have been put away. The doors are open. The excitement is upon us. Yes, the holiday shopping season is officially in full swing.
The annual Black Friday frenzy started Thursday night with hundreds of hot deals at Best Buy stores across the country and online at BestBuy.com. Many customers waited in line outside of stores for hours — if not days — to score some of the top doorbusters as soon as the doors opened at 5 p.m.
We stopped by our store in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, where CEO Hubert Joly was on hand to help kick things off. Here are a few highlights from the night.
There are plenty of great deals still available throughout this weekend. Most Best Buy stores reopened at 8 a.m. on Friday for a second round of Black Friday doorbusters, and most deals are also available online at BestBuy.com.
