EUGENE, Ore. -- Black Friday is still 18 days away, but some stores are wasting no time with deals for the holiday season, leaving some customers saying it’s too early.
Best Buy is offering Black Friday doorbuster sales starting Monday. In Springfield, Best Buy has deals on televisions and other electronics. Customer Al Hrynyshyn said he hates the early start to the holiday shopping season but still picked up a pair of headphones on Monday.
"From a business perspective, sure, I get it, it's hard to make a buck these days," Hrynyshyn said. "Everything is so competitive, but you know, I think it detracts from some of the other celebrations going on."
Other stores like Target and Walmart are also slashing prices, and online retail giant Amazon has some deals ahead of Cyber Monday.
Shopper Nick Jillings said he's not going to let a deal pass him by no matter what time of year it is.
"I do my Christmas shopping the day before Christmas out of tradition, but you know know what, today I'm just in the market today to buy a new computer," Jillings said.
