Black Friday early birds told to leave California Best Buy

EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) - EL CAJON, Calif. - Some shoppers lined up at a southern California Best Buy in anticipation for the stores' Black Friday sale have been asked to leave the property.

On Wednesday, Rhiannon Buckingham said she lined up at the El Cajon store because she wanted to make sure she got the best deal.

"Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line," she said. "They only had 15 TVs."

Buckingham was one of the early birds waiting in line as early as Wednesday for a flat screen television. This year, she said she planned to sleep in her chair outside of the Best Buy and switch out with friends until the store's Black Friday sale on the morning of Nov. 23.

However, on Thursday, management at the El Cajon Best Buy store said mall security demanded the women leave the property and come back on Thanksgiving.
