FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Many shoppers took to the stores after dinner to get a head start on Black Friday shopping. 

Stores such as Best Buy, Kohls, Walmart, and Target opened as early as 5:00 p.m. to let shoppers in. Some shoppers said it's a thrill to fight the crowds, and they won't find a better deal. 

"The prices. Getting Bluray movies for $3.99 is a good deal," said Tina Perry, a Best Buy shopper. 

Pam Newnum said shopping on Thanksgiving is a tradition for her family. 

"It's a rush. I just love getting good deals, and it's a lot of fun. We just make it a tradition, then we go to Ihop," Newnum said. 

Many stores have Black Friday prices going on through this weekend.
