Black Friday line starts more than a week early

Shoppers line up early in front of a Best Buy electronics store November 26, 2010 in Manassas, Virginia.

This final note, which comes with the observation that Thanksgiving and the semi-official start of holiday shopping season is still more than a week away.

In Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, there's a guy already camped out in front of the local Best Buy to make sure he's first in line for Black Friday sales. His ten-man tent has a generator, a space heater, a bed, a microwave oven, a laptop computer, a TV and a game console.
