Dispatches today from the Hamilton Place Mall, Best Buy and various local retailers have revealed that dozens of dedicated shoppers have begun camping out to reserve prime spots in lines in advance of next year’s Black Friday sales.

Although this year’s Black Friday has yet to happen, certain eager shoppers are already preparing for Black Friday in 2015 by pledging to devote a year of their lives to keep a spot in line.

“We actually have two separate lines of campers in front of our store right now,” said local Target store manager Keith Cardew. “One line is just for 2014 Black Friday shoppers, while the other line is for 2015 Black Friday shoppers.”

“I realize that camping out here for the next 367 days will make me miss the first day of Kindergarten for my daughter Jillian and the wedding of my best friend from high school,” said local resident Carla Sheaffe. “But, I know it’ll be worth it, so I can save $50 on a toaster oven.”
