Several hundred shoppers — perhaps up to a thousand — lined up outside the Best Buy on Lohr Road in Pittsfield Township for Black Friday.

The first group set up a tent outside the store at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, and other deal-seekers set up another dozen tents later.

By 11:45 p.m. Thursday — 15 minutes before the store was set to open — the line had ballooned. It curled around the store for several hundred feet.
