FORT MYERS, Fla. -- They've packed their patience and they've packed their tents and since Saturday, people have been camping out at Best Buy at Page Field in Fort Myers. But why give up turkey dinner and the Thanksgiving holiday?
Sean Keeley has been outside the doors of Best Buy since Friday night. He set up his tent Saturday morning. Other local people arrived to claim their spot on Wednesday night. They'll be passing on the turkey and stuffing on Thanksgiving but say they'll have friends taking shifts to bring them food. Its all to be one of the first people inside Best Buy when the doors open at midnight on Friday.
So why do people hold their ground and camp out? The answers are all in the price of some fancy electronics.
"Probably that 42 inch Sharp. You can't beat that you know? $199. A TV that size would probably be around $400 bucks so quite a deal for a nice brand," said Nick Arias and Kevin Palacios, who lined up Wednesday around 9 p.m.
"Just because I can basically and those TVs. $199, 42 inch Sharp and there are tablets that are good, some laptops, miscellaneous hard drives and what not," said Sean Keeley, who is the first in line.
Some people in line say they have the week off from work from their jobs. Others say recently they were laid off so they figured it would be a good time to save money where they can.
