Bargain hunters to spend Thanksgiving in line outside Greenwood Best Buy store

Mom, 4 kids make waiting a tradition

GREENWOOD, Ind. - A handful of determined shoppers, including a family of five, are spending their Thanksgiving waiting in line outside the Greenwood Best Buy store.

Rayann McGriff and her four children started waiting in line at 5 p.m. Wednesday -- 31 hours before doors open.

Equipped with tents, sleeping bags and lawn chairs, the family has been camping out for deals together for the last 15 years.

"Yeah, it's Thanksgiving, but it's tradition for our family," McGriff said. "Everybody's got their own little traditions, and this is our tradition."

The family hopes to nab a 40-inch TV for $150 and a laptop for $300.

"It's fun," McGriff said. "We save, and it's something me and the kids can do together."
