Day before Deals

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Hours before Black Friday Old Navy shoppers got a money saving head start on holiday shopping.

"We wanted to give them an early start on Black Friday. So, we just started some of our deals early today," said Old Navy Employee, Crystal Smith

The first fifteen shoppers attending Old Navy's Gobble palooza won a Rock Band guitar, but even if they did not win many said the savings were worth it.

With hundreds of items being discounted, shoppers are saying the sales are a warm up for tomorrow.

"This is just getting things starting today. We will be out in full force tomorrow morning," said one shopper.

Some people took the day early deals as an opportunity to get a head start on Christmas shopping.

"I have people holding it for me. I found a few things for me, but mostly it is Christmas gifts for other people," said Kelly Guidry.

Others in the shopping spirit said, rather than starting early, they would rather get a good place in line. One family packed a game of, some hot chocolate, and set up outside in the Toys-R-Us parking lot.
