Black Friday Campers on Thanksgiving

People eagerly waiting for Deguns to open in the morning

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A couple of families were already in line at Deguns in East Lincoln earlier today.

Deguns is allowing overnight campers to set up outside their doors for their Black Friday sale bright and early at 6 A.M. tomorrow.

They’re offering over $30,000 in gift cards and giveaways.  They also are raffling off merchandise and guns throughout the day.

The store says people usually arrive to start camping out at 10 O’clock in the evening,  Last year they had around 150 people in line by 11pm.

One of the folks outside talked to us about what he and his wife would be doing to celebrate Thanksgiving while they camp outside the store.

Ryan Wiebbecke told us, “Well we were supposed to bring some turkey with us, but we forgot it… So I don’t know what we’re doing. Oh, my wife brought some champagne oddly enough, so I guess that’s what we’re gonna have.”

He and his wife did bring along some homemade protein snacks though.

The store is also planning on giving a $5,000 gift card to the top spender of the day.
