Black Friday madness strikes Orange County early

The craziness of holiday shopping has hit Orange County as some shoppers are already lined up outside stores in hopes of getting the best deals.



Bryndon Romero, of Newburgh, is camped out at the Best Buy store in Middletown hoping to be first in line when the deals go into effect. Romero is not the only one waiting. There are tents outside the store with plenty more hungry customers.



Best Buy plans to open at 5 p.m. Thursday. Shoppers say even bad weather will not keep them from the stores.
