Tammi Pfaffenberger of Seymour stood anxiously in the entryway of Goody’s as one of the first Black Friday customers in line for early shopping Thursday night.

“I’m going to get those Android (tablets) for my grandkids for Christmas,” Pfaffenberger said.

While waiting for the doors to open, she told others in the small room that her grandchildren’s school has apps that their students can use to assist with homework as she struggled to hold back her excitement.

For many stores, open doors on Thanksgiving Day is a new concept. Regardless of the holiday, many Black Friday shoppers embraced the opportunity to find the deals early.

Some even changed their holiday plans to get in line.

Tonya Joseph of Seymour went to Walmart on Thursday night with her mother, nephew, husband and son.
