Bozeman Shoppers Line Up At Target For Black Friday Deals

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Stores are open and shoppers are eager to get a good deal for Black Friday.

But lines didn't exist at 5 p.m. at the Gallatin Valley Mall, which opened at 7 p.m., or Kohl's, which opened at 8 p.m.

While it's not clear why shoppers were staying away from some of the Black Friday hot spots, they were lining up across town at Target as early as 4:45 p.m. when the store wasn't set to open till 8 p.m.

Molly Dosland was the second person in line.

"This is my first time ever doing it and I'm here to get a TV because it is so cheap," said Dosland.

Dosland plans on doing more shopping on Black Friday, just at a more reasonable time.

"9 or 10. Not early with all the crazy people, this is crazy enough," said Dosland.

Meagan Carlson starts her Black Friday shopping at Target every year.

"This is a tradition for us," said Carlson.  "We're usually here three hours before the store opens almost every single year.  We've got five kids in our family so it is the best time to get the best prices."

She said she usually gets about the same spot outside the door when she gets in line.

With Target and other major retailers opening earlier every year, Carlson said she and her daughter have to make some sacrifices.

"It is a little of an inconvenience for us," said Carlson.  "We didn't get our pumpkin pie after our Thanksgiving meal tonight.  And it's not really Black Friday anymore."

Dosland doesn't like it either.

"I think it is a little crazy they open on Thanksgiving."

But they're still in line ready to grab a bargain.

Most large retailers opened at 8 p.m. Thursday.

Walmart opened at 6 Thursday, but K-Mart beat them by 12 hours, opening at 6 a.m.
