PHOENIX -- Shoppers around the Valley wrapped up Thanksgiving dinner in time to line up for the deals.

Retailers opened their doors as early as 4pm Thanksgiving day with doorbuster deals.

At the Toys R Us store on 7th Street and Bell Road, folks lined up as early as 2 p.m. for the 4 p.m. opening.

Black Friday deals gave way to post-turkey steals at the Best Buy at 20th Street and Camelback Road as well, where the Kindle Fire was a sought after item.

Bargain hunters filed in at the store's 6 p.m. opening.

Two hours later at Super Target at 7th Street and Bell, the end of the line was in sight. It snaked through to the end of the strip mall.

At 8 p.m., Super Target opened the doors and allowed people to enter in groups at a time.

The 50-inch TV was the hot item on many lists.

The first man in line set up camp at the doors Wednesday at 4 p.m.. His brother took shifts with him so they would both get Thanksgiving dinner before tackling a night of shopping.

Super Target had 1900 people through the doors last year and expect even more this year. Super Target stays open overnight and will not close until 11 p.m. on Black Friday night.
