Best Buy waited until midnight to open its doors.
It need not worry.
Across the southland the electronics giant was mobbed with people looking for bargains early Friday, despite waiting until midnight to open. Other retail giants, such as Walmart (8 p.m.) and Target (9 p.m.), opened late Thursday. Parking was hopping as vehicles circled to find room in overflowing lots.
Other area stores and malls were also opening overnight with deals aplenty for shoppers.
