LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The turkey, stuffing and pie has been consumed and Black Friday madness is on.

People were lined up outside the Best Buy store at Maryland Parkway and Flamingo Road on Thursday night, waiting for the doors to open at midnight.

Those queued up knew exactly what they wanted.

"I got the Toshiba (television set)," said one shopper.

"A couple of TVs here and there, and some movies and some games," said another shopper.

Many of them had been in line since Tuesday. Those who didn't wait as long were hopeful they would still get in on the deals.

"We just got here about 15 minutes ago, so there's not too many people in line right now. We're a little optimistic we're going to get a TV," said shopper Danny Cortez.

Shoppers weren't just targeting electronics stores. Some stores such as Target and Walmart opened at 9 p.m. on Thursday and also had people lined up hours ahead of time.

"I like Target personally better than Best Buy. I'm also looking for things like clothes for my kids because they're at a really deep discount – half off, even 70 percent off," said shopper Venessa Huntington.

Huntington was also waiting for an Xbox, while her sister, Brittany Huntington, was waiting in line outside Toy R Us.

"Our family is with us so we're going between each other, buying drinks and food and spending time seeing each other once in a while," Brittany Huntington said.

Shoppers FOX5 spoke with said they have no regrets.

"I'd say it is worth it because of the money you can save. It's only a couple of days – three days. It's not a big deal," said shopper Shaun Dyo, who was second in line outside of Best Buy.
