As many locally-owned businesses were closed for the Thanksgiving Day weekend, Madisonville’s Wal-Mart and K-Mart locations became the hot spots for Hopkins County shoppers as early as 1am this morning.

A Maintou, KY resident, Jamie Bockin, 22, spoke with iSurf News this morning and told us a little more on her Black Friday sales quests.

“I went to Wal-Mart at 5am this morning for a 32” Samsung flat-screen TV for $198,” said Bockin. “It was pretty crazy; there were quite a few people in there doing the exact same thing. I guess the sales on the big flat-screens are a pretty hot deal. I did have to wait in a long line, but it was worth it to get such a good deal.”

Wal-Mart employees said the biggest influx of consumers came in between midnight—when their Black Friday deals began—and 2am, yet many Hopkins County shoppers were still on the scene this morning, November 26th, hunting down “big time” bargains.

In fact, the aisles near the electronics and entertainment departments were still packed with customers between 9:30 and 10:30am. Many of the people iSurf spoke with at both Wal-Mart and K-Mart were picking up items such as Xbox 360s, TVs, and music products like MP3 players due to their “amazingly” low prices today. Additionally—and as expected—the toy aisles were quite a hot spot as well, with product lines based on Disney’s Toy Story 3 and  Power Wheels kids’ cars looking to be among some of the best sellers.

Though the chaos of Black Friday is nearly over, early Christmas shoppers who chose to avoid today’s crowds can still go online this upcoming Monday, November 29th, and catch some exclusive “Cyber Monday” deals.
