The countdown to Black Friday is on and this year many, many stores are opening bright and early some before the crack of dawn!

Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year.

Maureen Marino/Roxborough "I think it's fun, usually go out with my daughter spend all day go all over," said Maureen Marino of Roxborough.

Amy Fleming of Germantown starts shopping bright and early, "because you usually get the best deals and because you usually beat the rush."

But don't be so sure.

"Last year we had 192 people in line by 3:30, a half hour before we opened," said Nancy Longridge of Kohls.

Kohls and JC Penny are opening at 4a.m. again this year.

"Because people love to shop and they love to take advantage of the thrill of buying something really early in the morning that they've wanted."
