Shoppers get early start on Black Friday dealsPosted: Updated:
Shoppers got an early start on Black Friday deals at stores throughout the Hudson Valley.
Francisco Rivera sat outside a Yonkers Best Buy since Wednesday night to snag a doorbuster deal. He was joined by dozens of others -- some sitting in chairs or snoozing in a tent to try to keep warm.
Inside the store, employees geared up for the crowds. Some people had tickets guaranteeing their purchases, and others had lists as they were led into the store in groups.
Rivera got what he wanted after 20 hours in line and less than 10 minutes in the store.
