Shoppers Are Already Camping Out For Black Friday Sales

Hayley Peterson

Bargain-hungry shoppers are already lining up outside stores across the U.S. in anticipation of Black Friday sales, despite a winter storm that has brought freezing temperatures, snow and ice throughout the week.

Best Buy appears to be attracting the most committed of bargain hunters so far, at least according to pictures shared on social media.  Tents started going up outside various Best Buy stores — which will open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day — as early as last week. 

Lines have also started to form outside Target and Sam's Club. 

Here's a roundup of some of the lines so far:
