    Black Friday Retail Campers In Houston Texas


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BLAKEINHOU told me, 'I asked the (first couple in line) why they would stand in line this long and he told me there were laptops that retailed for $1800 that were going for $499 a piece. They figured it was a savings of $2600.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Holiday shoppers began camping out Wednesday, November 25th at a Best Buy store in Houston, Texas to wait for the doors to open again Friday morning at 5am. The first shoppers to pitch a tent in line are Dustin and his wife Christy who are there to take advantage of the low prices on the limited quantity of laptops. To pass the time fellow campers Anthony, Omar and Anabel play dominos as they wait to make their purchases of the Black Friday prices on flat screen TV's. Photos by Sean Blake of
