First camper set up outside Lexington Best Buy

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Black Friday is happening a little early this year and one man doesn't want to miss it.

Tom Brennan is already camping outside the Best Buy on Nicholasville Road. The store opens at 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Brennan has been the first shopper in line for the past three years. He's from Detroit, so the cold temperatures don't phase him.

"In some ways, it sounds like it's pretty crazy," says Brennan. "But it's all in fun... no different than lining up for Big Blue Madness."

While Brennan is looking for a touch screen laptop and a Samsung Galaxy phone, he says he gets more out of it than the material things.

"You get to meet a lot of nice people in your community," says Brennan. "It's a lot of fun."

There's another upside. Brennan says he'll still make it home in time for Thanksgiving dinner.
