Burbank Police sent several units to the Empire Center on Thanksgiving night when The Target Store opened for Black Friday deals, those same officers then stood by the entrance to Best Buy as hundreds waited to get in.

The first hundred were issued a wristband, and were given access at midnight. Possibly a thousand more customers stretched all around the store to the back parking lots, some waiting days for the special holiday Black Friday deals.
