Colin Borden is camping out in front of Best Buy for first crack at this year's doorbusters.
It’s still more than a day away, but for some, Black Friday is already here. Sort of. On Wednesday morning, Colin Borden of South River was camped outside of Best Buy on Route 18 in East Brunswick, getting ready for the store’s Black Friday opening. The store opens at midnight Thanksgiving Day. “I did it a lot in high school and we always made it a big party,” said Borden. “Once people start lining up, it’ll be a good time.” So what’s he waiting for? He plans on picking up a Blue Ray player, and two televisions, a 55-inch and a 40-inch, as well as the Xbox Bundle. But between now and then, he’ll be spending time on his laptop, inside of his tent, and on the generosity of friends and family to bring him Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Follow …

Love it or hate it, Black Friday is the super bowl of shopping. And with its arrival only mere days away, East Brunswick is abuzz with people talking about the potential savings stores big and small have to offer. Some people create their own Black Friday “game plans” on what stores to hit and when after they've poured over the announced bargains various retailers have to offer. There are those so keen on saving they set alarms to wake them up in the wee hours of the night. These folks line up early and some even camp out all night to be able to scoop up the deals they’re after. Are you one of those shoppers? Do you do Black Friday or do you prefer to stay as far away from stores on the day after Thanksgiving as possible? Follow Patch on …
