People Waiting in Line all Night for $100 Compaq at Circuit

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Right now you might be heading back into the kitchen for thirds, or you're thinking about some sweet potato pie, or perhaps you're about to snake the Lay-Z-Boy from Grampa as he takes a leak.

But around the country people are gearing up for Black Friday specials. Black Friday being the day after Thanksgiving where major retailers unload a few choice deals to sucker lure the madding crowds into their stores.

We met up with some people who will be waiting all night tonight at the Sunset Blvd. Circuit City for a $100 Compaq notebook computer.

In order to get the laptop that's equipped with a DVD drive for a Benjamin, you have to sign up for Vonage and fill out some rebate forms, but once you do, you will have a pretty nice computer for a very nice price.
