The countdown begins to one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

On Wednesday morning, we found some Black Friday shoppers already camped out waiting for the door busters.

Michael Bedard and Sergio Fraguela have been camped out at the West Palm Beach Best Buy since Monday. They have the essentials to pass the time: two TVs, an X-Box, a tent and a generator. They both have their hearts set on the TV bargains and maybe some laptops, trying to help out some family members too.

While both believe the deals are better than ever, they also agree that Black Friday has lost some of its hype.

“From five years ago… a day before, a day and a half before, it was a mad house out here already,” said Fraguela.

Meanwhile over at Brandsmart, we found some shoppers scoping out the deals ahead of Black Friday.

“Just shopping around to see on Friday what I’m going to buy,” said shopper Yorly Lee.

Lee was carefully calculating what she should be now and what will be a better deal on Black Friday.

She plans to wait until Friday to do her shopping.
