28 Nov: Best Buy welcomes Black Friday shoppers [PHOTOS]

Employees and customers celebrated the start of Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving night, when Best Buy stores opened their doors at 5 p.m.

It’s our favorite time of year. Employees spend months making sure they know everything about the latest tech gifts and services, so they can help customers choose the right gifts for everyone on their shopping lists.

“You are going to make some kid, some mom, some grandma’s holiday better because you were here tonight,” Best Buy CEO Corie Barry told the store team in Richfield, Minnesota, just minutes before the first customers entered.
