Houston shoppers hit the stores for Black Friday deals

- Long lines, a big rush -- it's what folks just do when it comes to Black Friday shopping.

Gildardo Jimenez and his family got in line Wednesday night and were able to get several TVs and a computer for about $130 a piece. 

"You would start for days before, four or five days before, now it’s less time because too many people are in the line for computers for laptops or for whatever," Jimenez says.

Best Buy handed out vouchers for those at the front of the line looking to buy big ticket items. “I wasn’t even planning on coming out here to be honest. My girlfriend got this. She heard about it from her coworkers and she came home and she said she wanted to buy me one, but she didn’t know if it was going to be a good deal. So I was like 'yes we have to go get it,'” says Dylan Jacob.

At Target, the line of shoppers waiting to check out zig-zagged through most of the front half of the store. St. Jules Latrisha Johnson says, "Well we came out looking for domestics, more like the sheets sets, but they were gone. So we just took advantage of getting the towels because we need more.” 

“I think we got here at five and we came in and we had to go around because there was a lot of people here,” says her daughter Chloe Johnson.

“Great door buster TVs, over about 15 TV’s under that $300 price point, but everybody’s been excited and just super happy that they chose us this year,” says store manager Joy Blalock of the Target location off Taylor.

For those debating about getting out and shopping...

Jing Hu says, "Actually this is my first time to come to Black Friday, so it’s very good and I will tell my friends coming for sure."
