Some customers at Best Buy, 5801 N May Ave., complained about the lack of security before doors opened today at 5 a.m.
Those who arrived Thursday afternoon or early Friday said people were cutting to the front of the line to try to snag the store’s doorbuster vouchers.
“A bunch of kids came, and they just kept piling in,” said Leif Fisher, 57, from California, who had been in line since 6 p.m. Thursday.
John Butler, 27, from Little Axe, said he eventually called police.
“It just wasn’t right,” he said. “They roll in an hour or two before and want to get all the stuff that everybody else has been waiting 14 hours for.”
Butler and Fisher said Best Buy’s security showed up around 3 a.m. this morning.
