Joplin Family Turns Shopping into Thanksgiving Tradition

Updated:

Before shoppers get their hands on the holiday deals on Thursday, some waited in line for hours.

Zeb Reed and his brother Arad are just two of the many shoppers, who waited outside Target in Joplin.

"I think it's part of the thanksgiving experience and you save a bunch of money," said Zeb.

Last year Zeb bought a 40 inch television from Best Buy. This year his younger brother is going for a 50 inch television.

"I saw what I though was a really good deal so I thought I'd try for it," said Arad.

In Joplin some stores opened at 8 P.M. Before doors opened, those in line tell us they used the buddy system. While one person waits in the cold the other waits in a nearby vehicle.

"I keep fighting till the finish line if you doubt it you'll doubt it the entire time," said Zeb, "Dress up warm that's all I can think of and try to bear it out."

Their parents are prepared a Thanksgiving meal in Carthage, but the brothers say they consider this a tradition too.

"Last year they were upset, but they are starting to get use to it," said Zeb.
