LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - For many across Kentuckiana and the rest of the country, Thanksgiving has turned into a wait for Black Friday.

People woke up on the sidewalk outside the Best Buy in Okolona Thursday morning. Many showed up Wednesday night, but some have been there since Monday.

Paul Ingram said he's a broke college student who could only afford a TV at the Black Friday price. It's his first time camping out for a TV.

"My arm went numb several times, and I kept waking up because I'm hitting the sides of the table," Ingram said. "It's been a nightmare."
