A Three Hour Wait? Long Lines Greet Holiday Shoppers

  The holiday shopping fun was a little frustrating for some eager to get their hands on  a few gifts.     
  Armed with sales ads, a shopping list and credit cards many hit the stores only to find no light at the end of the tunnel. Most shoppers were greeted by long lines at the end of their journey, so long in fact some gave up and went home.
  At Best Buy in Tyler the line stretched all the way to the back of the store. Employees told KLTV the wait to checkout Friday morning was as long as 3 hours. A few people during the wait said was worth it, others decided to leave it all for another day.
  "Not that enthused about the wait but its well worth it," said shopper Cody Mize. "You save a lot of money on these deals so you stand in line 30 minutes that's not too bad."
  "Came here to get some games that were on sale and did okay there till we got ready to check out and then was told it would probably be about 2 to 3 hours before we could make it to the register, it's not worth it," said Shanna Szabo.
  "I do this every year, its just the whole thing of the christmas spirit and the rush and stuff it's just like an adrenaline rush, " said Consuelo Crawford.
