TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - As Thanksgiving enters its full swing, people around the nation are lined up on the starting line for those Black Friday Deals.

Local residents even joined the masses, starting Thursday morning at Best Buy off of Appalachee Parkway.

One person standing in line says he is hoping to get his hands on a $200 flatscreen TV.

He also plans to eat Thanksgiving dinner while waiting for the doors to open.

Adam Asker, who's visiting family in town said,"As of today, I've been here about seven hours. I've been doing this for about two years and I've loved it every single time. Good luck getting what you want." 

And while some stores are open all day today, others opted to stay closed including the entire Mall of America in Minnesota.
