Duluth, Minn. (NNCNOW.com) -- Some traded in Thanksgiving family traditions for a spot in line at a number of department stores across our area in hopes of scoring big deals.

Many stores opened their doors early to bargain hungry customers, including the Best Buy at Burning Tree Plaza.

Dedicated shoppers lined up for hours before the store's 6 p.m. opening.

Other stores, like Target, opened at 8 p.m. and customers were well prepared for the wait.

"This is my dad's Ice Fishing house and we got a propane heater right there and we got our car that we have been stealing power from that, got a couple of laptops," said Josh Klemond. He had been outside Best Buy since 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Eve.

"Well My ski pants are in the vehicle so we can swap out and I can go change. I got my boots, my toque, my mitts, my coffee some snacks, I'm prepared," said Rachelle Anderson who came down from Canada to catch the deals.

Most of the hot ticket items on people's shopping lists included laptops, TVs and tablets.

The shopping lasts all weekend and be sure to not forget about Small Business Saturday in Downtown Duluth.
