CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
It's now being called Brown Thursday, as Thanksgiving Day is
taking over the infamous Black Friday.
In advance of the big holiday sales, people are starting to
camp out around the Tri-State to get the best deals they can.
"We got here yesterday at 5
o'clock," said Kyle Bowen of Alexandria.
That's when Bowen and his crew
pulled up in their bus-turned-campsite into the Best Buy parking lot in
Florence on Tuesday, nearly 48 hours ahead of their doors opening for holiday
"Coming out here and hanging
out with everybody is kind of fun to have our close friends. It's just
kind of an experience, I guess," said Bowen.
The group on the bus are the
first people in line, but it isn't their first time camping.
"This is the fifth year with
the bus, but our seventh year. We used to sit in chairs and brave the
cold," said Adam Bessler of Newport, who is one of four on the bus.
They're hardly roughing it while
they're waiting for the doors to open.
"We don't go without. We have a TV on there. There's heaters, couches to sleep on. We can
actually get on Best Buy's wi-fi so we have computers and things," Bessler
But, what about spending the
holiday with family around a big table and a turkey? They've got that
"We're going to buy some raw
chicken or turkey, probably some vegetables, some starch, light up the grill,
cook it and have a nice meal," Bowen told FOX19.
That's just how they like to
spend the holiday because, for them, it's truly becoming a Thanksgiving
"This is how our
Thanksgiving is going to be, probably for a while," said Bowen.
