Woman claims 1st Black Friday spot outside of Best Buy on Monday

Posted: Updated:

If you want to talk dedication to this year's biggest shopping day, you don't have to look far.

Ashley Wagner is paying a price to beat big costs.  She will be calling a tent pitched near the front door of Best Buy home for the next four days.

"If you want a door buster deal, you either have to stay the night or you won't get what you want," said Wagner.

Wagner said the line stretched more than a couple blocks last year.  She claims being first means shoppers are locked into the deal they want.

"People can get a little crazy when it comes to shopping," Wagner said.

Wagner plans on getting a laptop, a big screen TV and a camera. 

Her 15-year-old brother spends time waiting in line with her after he gets out of school.  But he hasn't completely bought into his sister's determination.

"I felt a certain guilt," said Wagner's brother, Michael.  "I did it last year too, I didn't like it," he said.  When asked if he still doesn't like it, he said no.

Michael's not the only one who wonders how and why his sister would spend this much time.

"If you're doing this right now, that's a life, you're pretty much waiting for everything to happen," said passerby Jaylon Washington.

Some even question her sanity.

"I don't think there's any borderline about it, but you go girl!" laughed Pat Nowosab.

"I've had a few people say they applaud me and stuff, but other than that, it's been rude comments," said Ashley Wagner.

But she said the haters will quiet down when she walks out of the store with a cart full of goodies and a pocket full of extra cash.
