Several stores are opening on Thanksgiving and people all over the Quad Cities are lining up for deals. There are long lines at NorthPark Mall, Toys R Us, Best Buy and several other stores on both sides of the river.

"I've been out here since Monday," says Nathaniel Wilbur.

Wilbur is waiting for Black Friday deals.

"I'm going to be buying a couple of TV's and a laptop," adds Wilbur.

As he stands in line, Wilbur is hoping people are watching him wait.

"We've also been doing YouTube videos online," says Wilbur.

Since this is the 8th year Wilbur has stood in the Best Buy line, he decided it was time to share his strategies.

"I've been doing a daily video," adds Wilbur, "I'm showing what it's like setting up on day 1 and I'm going to be doing a video of running into the store."

The college student isn't the only one waiting.

"I saw the line and I wanted to get the 40 inch television that's on sale, so I figured I'd get out here as soon as possible," says Rob Fonville.

Electronics aren't the only draw; toys also have people waiting in line.

"There's a Leap Pad and a couple of other good deals," says Amy Ressen, "I have a 2 year old son, and so we have a couple of good ideas for him for Christmas."

No matter what people are waiting for, everyone says standing in line is a great experience.

"It's fun talking to everybody and having a good time," adds Reseen, "It's about having fun while waiting for the store open, so it's been a good time."

Wilbur is hoping what he buys will help get more views on his YouTube Channel.

"Starting next week I'm going to start having a segment called "What If," says Wilbur.
