OREM -- It's still a few days away from Thanksgiving, but that isn't stopping some Utahn's from lining up outside of stores for Black Friday deals.

The line of tents keeps growing outside the Orem best buy, and at the front of the pack is Dale Burr. He's been roughing it here since Saturday.

"Well, it's part of the experience with my boys, but this year they have a 42 inch TV for $199 bucks, so it's a pretty good deal." Burr said.

Just down the sidewalk is first-time Black Friday camper Jose Figueroa. He's a college student from Miami.

"It's freezing," he said." "Last night it was horrible. It was horrible. My feet are still kinda cold. I'm just happy that it's nice and sunny today."

Figueroa he says it's worth spending Thanksgiving Cold sidewalk - as long as he gets the stuff he wants.

He's not alone either. A dozen or more Black Friday shoppers have already made their camps outside the Orem best buy.

JD Lauret set up his tent last night after noticing people were already in line. He says the In-N-Out across the street will be his main food supply for the next few days.

The popular items these people are after this year? TVs and laptops.
