CBS 2’s Meredith Barack reported live outside Best Buy in South Loop where there have not been as big of crowds as in past years.

The store manager told Barack that’s because they released their Black Friday sale prices days ago and many people are sleeping in. The manager said they will make their way to the store later.

Experts say shoppers in the market for a specific present should buy it now if they can, instead of waiting for a better price.

Toys are among the gifts that could be hard to come by.
