As most area residents were eating their Thanksgiving dinners, others were waiting outside local stores to be the first in line for holiday sales.
Although it traditionally is called "Black Friday" stores have begun opening earlier, which have seen some open on Thanksgiving.
"I'm going to do a makeup dinner (Friday)," said Jacob Hines, of Hughesville.
Hines missed his family's Thanksgiving meal since he and a group of friends were waiting in front of Sears since 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
But Hines wasn't alone, as others waited longer for the chance to pickup holiday gifts on sale.
"We're going to celebrate (Friday)," said Anthony Sims, who waited for about 30 hours for the doors of Best Buy to open.
Sims explained that the long holiday weekend allowed his family an opportunity to do the traditional Thanksgiving meal another time besides Thursday.
Lisa Gardner, of Muncy, said stores keep opening up "earlier and earlier." But she added that it's all about adapting in order to get the deals.
Gardner said she was able to eat an earlier meal before heading out to stores.
Sims said he doesn't mind having to work around the stores' hours but would rather see employees have the holiday off.
"It pushes Thanksgiving, the appreciation, back for the employees," he said. "Personally, I would like to see it go back to 5 a.m. (Friday). ... I wouldn't want to have to work on Thanksgiving."
But as Bill Holmes, of Linden, said those who don't want to shop on Thanksgiving, "don't have to do it."
