LINCOLN -- Aaron Phan didn't want to miss special prices on tablet devices at Lincoln's Best Buy store, so he set up camp Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, becoming the first in line. Best Buy opened at 6pm Thanksgiving evening. Phan told KFOR NEWS his wife had to work Thanksgiving Day, so his family will celebrate this weekend. The line at Best Buy stretched around the building by 4pm Thursday. Ray Boldin waited outside Lincoln's Sears store, telling KFOR NEWS he was in line to get the new Playstation 4 gaming system. For the most part, Lincoln stores gave shoppers time to digest their turkey before opening their doors. Toys R Us opened at 5pm Thanksgiving Day...Walmart opened at 6pm. Target, Kohls, JC Penney, Younkers and Sears all opened at 8pm Thursday.
