Shoppers are already lined up outside Best Buy for Black Friday.

ORLANDO, Fla. -

Lines are already forming outside Central Florida stores days before "Black Friday."

On Sunday, Local 6 spoke with the Diaz family, who had already pitched two tents outside the Best Buy store at 4601 E. Colonial Drive.

The Diaz family told Local 6 this is the first year they've been at the front of the line ahead of the annual holiday shopping frenzy.

"I think we pulled the trigger a little too early but, we're here already.  We took the time off, we're going to follow through", said Arnal Garcia, of Orlando.

Garcia said it was was his son's idea to get the family of six to spend the week outside the store. 

"It's like camping -- but on concrete," Garcia said. "We just like to save a little bit of money on some products, and, at the the same time, enjoy this family time here." 

Best Buy plans to open at midnight Thanksgiving Day.
