A few dozen people waited in a neat, socially distant line around 4:30 a.m. outside the Best Buy on Friday morning. Some were hoping to get an Xbox, only to learn it was only being offered online. Others were just shopping for general deals or holiday presents.
The wet, foggy conditions — with temperatures in the low 30s — and the coronavirus pandemic didn’t stop the Black Friday shoppers, who were donning face coverings, from showing up for deals on electronics. Here are some of the scenes from the morning.
